Excuse me, sky, but it's only May

The first day of June marks the official beginning of what we call "the rainy season" or "hurricane season" here in Florida. This period, characterized by precipitation ranging from light showers to thunderstorms to hurricanes, lasts all the way through November. I mention it because the sky seems to have forgotten this, and has gotten ahead of schedule.

Now, this definitely does not mean that summers down here aren't hot. They are. It's almost paradoxical, explaining how Florida can be both the "Sunshine State" and the lightning capital of the world.

You can tell that it has been an uneventful week when I have nothing to discuss but the weather. Oh well.

  1. Or that you're not British ... we discuss it all the time, or rather we preface every conversation with some reference to the weather ... 'Nice day', 'It's raining cats and dogs out there', 'Bit nippy this morning' ... you get the idea ;)
