Stormy Weather

From Stormy Weather by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler


I woke early, during that time when dark is transitioning to dawn. A soft rain was falling. The drops were so light that I could just barely hear them.

I rolled over in my bed and stretched luxuriously. It had been a relatively cool night so I had slept very well. The summer heat in St John was intense most of the time, even at night.

[18:04] Gabrielle Riel: Our first topic is the St John Market.

[18:05] Gabrielle Riel: The market is right out here in the square. It’s in the building that looks like a miniature version of the actual French Market in NOLA.
