Welcome back humidity, we haven’t missed you…

So, because Geekhiker was talking about June Gloom the other day, I have to admit it got me thinking about the rain in Spain that has been falling in my back parking lot now for what seems like weeks.

See, rain is a customary feature of the Mid-Atlantic weather pattern, as we get hit by what most people call here gross out August. Yes, that’s when you can walk outside your front door and the steam hits you so bad you never thought you could lose three pounds by sweating. Nope, while the West Coast enjoys a good dry heat summer, we have the wet humidity that you only thought was possible in Florida.

So, welcome back summer. I’ve missed you.

    Don’t you hate it when people say, “It’s not the heat it’s the humidity!” ?

    When I was a kid, we went to a family reunion down in Alabama. At one point, all the kids went swimming. It was already humid, then it started raining, then it turned into a thunderstorm. Needless to day, this was a unique experience to a boy from a Mediterranean climate, where summers are bone-dry.

    Oh, and they didn’t pull us out of the pool when the lightning started. No, they only pulled the kids out of the pool when it started raining so hard that they couldn’t see us from the lifeguard platform!
