Living on the Gulf Coast means that with the exception of a few pesky hurricanes, the weather here is pretty spectacular year round. Winters are short and relatively mild, spring comes early, fall is lovely and really the best time to visit, and summer – well, summer can be fickle. The season, by far, is the longest and can include stifling heat and lung collapsing humidity. This year though, it’s been reasonable. I feel like I should apologize to my northern neighbors because they are getting much higher temps than we are.
And… we are getting rain. Soaking, lawn loving, rain. Nothing apocalyptic, no hurricanes (yet, knock on wood), and no weeks on end of wet stuff. A few days here and there of afternoon and evening showers, some thunder and lightning, and very dramatic skies.
I’m waiting for the proverbial shoes to drop. We still have four months left in the Hurricane Season, we could still get ours. For now, I’ll enjoy the milder days and cooling rain.
