We had a torrential downpour on Saturday night, accompanied by near hurricane-force winds.

I get the golf and the hiking, but does anyone really love living here because of some company, unless they work for it?
I realize that the gratuitous plug for the company is a quid pro quo for their having supported the Chamber, but it is so misplaced that I have to chuckle.
