I’ve been in the US for more than a month now. I’m still adjusting to my new environment and so far I’m doing okay. Florida weather is similar to the Philippines’ so I didn’t have a hard time acclimating. I don’t really miss the Philippines, but I do miss my loved ones and pets back home.
It’s now summer here but it has been really humid outside. I learned that during the summer, Tampa Bay often gets thunderstorms almost every afternoon, earning it the title “lightning capital of the US.” This city is well-known for thunderstorms that it even named its hockey team the Tampa Bay Lightning (a.k.a. Bolts).
