Painting during the edge of Hurricane Wilma

I painted this at Round Island Park in Vero Beach. Thats the ocean in the background and the very edge of Wilma. The painting and I got soaked and after I finished I made a dash to the car. I was under a pavilion and the rain was blowing horizontally right through. Those are the rain drops on the painting, they have dried off and the painting is fine.
