Here it is August and North Carolina appears to have a
new season. . . . . . . . 'The Wet'.
Don't remember another Summer such as this with so much rain late July into August.
Waking morning after morning to saturated gardens, pools of water, low and
threatening grey skies, over the top humidity numbers, and not a ray of sunshine,
is depressing. Certainly not what summertime is usually like here.
Most outdoor activities have been postponed, especially at the coast where
riptides and storms have curtailed beach visits.
My garden is literally waterlogged!
Last time I was in 'The Wet' - and it was expected at that time of year - was when
visiting Vietnam. Somehow rainy days were extraordinarily beautiful there, perhaps
because the radiant colors of the ancient buildings came to life in the rain.
Do you like rainy days?
