Preparing for Summer Storms

downloadWhen I was a wee lad growing up in the back woods of North Carolina a summer storm meant time spent inside reading and listening to my grandfather speak of how the farm used to be.  Now that I am grown I can see how much my grandfather and father done ahead of time to make sure that everyone stayed safe and happy during one of those storms because everyone knows that summer rains, you can never predict them.  A gentleman is able to bring everyone together and make the best out of a bad situation and this podcast is serving that purpose.
