Just One More Thing

I've been reading the Friday posts over at The Qi Papers with amazement lately. She has been doing this thing called Fiday Flash 55, which is organized (not really sure that is the right word) by the G-Man

What it is, is a very short story, in 55 words. It's amazing to see how much some of the writers can pack into 55 words. I decided to give it a try this week, and found out that it's very hard to edit down to 55 words! So here is my attempt, inspired by this weeks weather.
 
******************************

My Very First Friday Flash 55
 
Hoffman hit the trail in August, when the weather was dry. Now in November, it was warm, humid, and there was a strange stillness in the air. The rain began. He dashed under a rocky overhang. Hoffman hoped the storm wouldn’t last long. Two hundred miles away, the hurricane warning flags whipped in the wind.

Got it in just under the wire!
