A very welcome break from the heat

We've been getting a lot of rain this week. Nothing too bad in this part of town (although there was some minor flooding in parts of town yesterday).

It's not welcome so much for the rain (although we do need it) as it is the cooling off that it's done.

Summers here are brutal. The average day is a very himid 92 with a 20-30% coverage of afternoon thunderstorms.

Yesterday it never got above 80, and that's with long enough breaks in the rain to get some stuff done outside.

It felt like October, which is probably the nicest month of the whole year in these parts, this afternoon when I walked the dogs.

Alas, this kind of weather is forecast to go away in the next few days, and we'll be back to a hot and sticky 92 this weekend.

October can't come soon enough.
