The Rainy Season

We're in the rainy season now. It coincides pretty much with hurricane season, from June 1 through November 30. Over the past two weeks, there has been rain nearly every day, sometimes in that torrential, tropical way that one associates with the islands of the Caribbean. What? Oh, right. this is an island of the Caribbean, isn't it. The rain itself doesn't bother me much. If I'm out somewhere, it's easy enough to duck inside until the rain passes.

What goes along with the rainy season is the humidity season. Even when it isn't raining, temps in the high 80's and low 90's get to be uncomfortable when combined with humidity numbers in the 70% plus range, and those are typical numbers at this time of year.

Weather folklore has it that more rain than usual at the beginning of hurricane season bodes well for fewer and weaker hurricanes later on in the year. That would be nice. We'll see.
