It’s time for another summer weekend! This past week, there were storms that popped up everyday over the area giving some places an inch or two of rain. Here in Leesburg, we got over 2 inches of rain from a storm on Wednesday! Tropical Storm Elsa also passed to our east earlier today and yesterday, before quickly moving up the East Coast. Currently, it is 77 in Leesburg and partly cloudy, and while there are no storms here at the moment, there are some to our north and east that will make their way further east to the coast.

This week will be a lot less windy, so if anyone did incur some damage or get some items scattered in the backyard, you have plenty of time to clean up. Currently, it is 74 degrees in…
