More about Rainy Season

So, we’ve been in what I call Rainy Season for a few weeks now.  Our Rainy Season is typically marked by daily afternoon thunder showers that sweep across the peninsula of Florida on a predictable schedule.  This has to do with Florida being a peninsula, and due to the way the winds work.  These thunder showers are brief and intense.  They cool things down as the winds come ahead of them, and then after it rains it is steamy for a few hours.  Ten to twenty years ago, you could set your clock by the time it rained in your neighborhood, it was that predictable.   And every neighborhood had a different time for its afternoon rain. 

We haven’t gotten into that rhythm yet this year, it is still a little early.  And I believe that the entire rhythm has changed because of all the development that has happened.  I think you need water to get more water.
