Central Florida Thunderstorm

Setting Sun

In the second video I was holding my phone steady on top of one of the fence posts that can be seen in the first video.

I really do enjoy green and rain.  My hubby and I are seriously thinking of moving to the NW.  Last week it was rainy here in Colorado, but this week sunny again.  A friend told me how happy she was that the dry weather had returned.  I surprised her by saying I had really enjoyed the clouds and rain.  Guess my view is a bit more unusual.  But rainy days seem so life-giving to me.  And I like bundling up and drinking hot tea.  That fits for the NW, right?  I think your FL rain is warm though.  A different dynamic.

If you like rain then you will love the PNW about 6mos a year.

A good thunderstorm will drop the temperature into the mid to upper ‘70’s.  The short ones have a downside, though, not enough rainfall to cool the ground, so the humidity goes up rapidly after it clears.

Still, I thoroughly enjoy a good thunderstorm.  Our rainy season is generally from late May until mid October, about 5 months.  From mid June until mid September we get rain just about every afternoon.  The heavy ones sound like an artillery barrage.

A friend told me the Florida raindrops are warm.  Here in Colorado, they are icy—in temperature, and also sometimes literally hail stones.  The air is so dry, even after a brief thunderstorm, the humidity remains low.  Great for drying laundry, but tough on our skin.
