We had our first really hard rain of the year at my place last night. The whole show: lightning, thunder, and pouring rain starting around 2:30 a.m.
This is just the opening number. The rainy season starts in earnest about the middle of May. Along with it comes the high humidity and the afternoon boomers coming in from the Everglades to soak the ground and make the lawn grow to the point that I’ve got a hayfield out back between the cutting every two weeks.
It will also make the morning commute miserable, which is why I’m glad I’ve got another vacation day today.
