That's the way it is for a lot of the country right now. It's like summers in the South. Stay safe bro!

We definitely needed the rain as of a week ago. My lawn was looking like a hay field. Now, it looks like early May.

I could do without the high winds that these storms usually bring with them.

Wettest July in the history of Chicago.

Seems like people around here are never happy. Back in late spring when it was in the 50's everybody was bitching about it being too cold. Then we had our first streak in the 90s for the year and everybody said it was too hot. Later on this summer, we had heat index in the 1115ish range. Again, wayyyyyyyy too hot. Just a week or two ago, people were asking why it hadn't rained for a bit. Now we're saying it's raining too much. I suppose that blizzard was too much snow and wind too, eh?

It's Chicago. This is the just the way it is in the Great Lakes area. You're not in San Diego.

You might be correct. I believe June was very cold as compared to the average (or was that May?), so maybe it evens itself out. All I know growing up in the midwest is that shit is never "average". There's always some abnormal shit going on and average is just a statistical compilation that's great in theory but is often very different from the present.

I haven't seen a drop of rain in weeks in central Indiana. Driest July on record.

I'll never buy a house with skylights in the bedroom again. This lightning is a combination of heat lightning and regular storm lightning and it creates a constant strobe effect. The room lights up like you're in a club sans the music. Furthermore, the rain hitting the skylight windows sounds like popcorn popping which makes it even harder to nod off. Did I mention the heat (yes they're tinted) they give off during the summer?

Skylights FML....
