Rain, thunderstorms, heat and humidity hold Roundtop in its grasp this week. Rain is a daily event, though it certainly isn’t needed anymore. Storms pass somewhere nearby daily. I hear thunder every night but haven’t yet gotten a storm directly overhead.
The weather has cramped my outdoor activities a bit. I don’t want to be in the middle of a project or on a long walk only to find myself in the middle of a thunderstorm with no escape to shelter quickly available. So I end up not getting as much done as I’d like or walking as far as usual.
Inside, I’ve been forced to pull the fan out of storage. I haven’t yet turned it on, though I expect I’ll have to do that this evening. The forest is like a jungle, and sticky mud makes walking in many areas less than enjoyable.
I’m starting to think we might make rain forest status here this year, though as thick as the forest looks right now, I’m not sure that would make any real difference. Unless a few toucans or monkeys show up.
