Our afternoon temperatures are hovering around 90F+. My backyard rain gauge showed more than 10" in the past week starting June 24. Rainy season is definitely here. We joke about it being Monsoon season here in south Florida, but I was wondering about our DC friends in India -- how many inches in a week would fall in a real Monsoon season? From what I read on Wikipedia, the time of year is approximately the same as ours.

No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

It's early yet, so I have the windows open and the front door propped open with a shoe. I know I'll have to run the A/C, but will stall as long as possible.

The heat would be easier to bear if there were at least a little breeze, but strangely enough there hasn't been much for about a month. I say strangely because living so near the Gulf of Mexico again, as I have for much of my life, I'm used to there being a breeze most of the time.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

It's just about 12:30 here and it's sunny and 76 with a slight breeze, beautiful and perfect. I love days like these. Just wish I didn't have to work!!

This is South Carolina's 36th (possibly 35th?) day in a row with a high of over 90. It has been hot, humid, and miserable. It is supposed to be 95 today and close to 100 tomorrow and the 4th. We have A/C, but the sun still blazes through the house and heats us up at times. Nothing like outside though.
