Bob: Hello. Good to see you.
Jane: Hi. You look hot. Is it hot outside now?
Bob: Very hot. And it’s humid too.
Jane: Really? It isn’t usually humid at this time of year.
Bob: It’s terrible. You step outside and you feel it immediately.
Jane: I guess I’m glad to be stuck at my desk then.
Bob: It’s a good day to be inside!
Jane: Do you know what tomorrow’s supposed to be like?
Bob: No, I haven’t checked the weather yet.
Jane: I hope it’s less humid.
Jane: Did you see the fog this morning?
Bob: Yeah. It was really bad. I could barely see the road when I was driving in my neighborhood.
Jane: I know. I pulled over for a minute and thought about staying home for an hour. I don’t like driving in the fog!
Bob: Yeah. It’s no fun if you’re not used to it.
Jane: It did clear up, though, during the commute.
Bob: Do you come from the north or the south?
Jane: I come from the north.
Bob: Me too. I noticed it was clearing up on the bridge.
Jane. Yeah. That’s what I mean. It was much better then.
Bob: I saw that it was gone by 10am.
Bob: Did you hear about the hurricane on the east coast?
Jane: Yeah. I heard the winds were really strong.
Bob: There was a lot of damage. I have some family in North Carolina.
Jane: Oh—were they in the area during the hurricane?
Bob: Yeah, they stayed home. North Carolina gets a lot of hurricanes.
Jane: Did they lose any property or anything?
Bob: No, they didn’t. But their neighbors had a large tree fall onto their fence. Everyone lost power for a few days too.
Jane: I’ve never been in a hurricane. I’d be scared if I heard the wind outside.
Bob: As long as the wind isn’t too hard, it isn’t so bad. You have to have candles ready, though.
Jane: It must be hard to be without power for a few days.
