    We are having far too much rain too. After the extremely long and cold winter with far too much snow, now its an uncommonly wet summer with dangerous floods all over Europe :-(.

    Until the cell towers go out in a storm. Had a hurricane blast through Florida (a few times) and I was the only person in the condo complex with a landline that was still working (all of the cell towers were out at least for a week). One minute call to let the folks back home know you were safe or a 911 call – free. Anything over a minute, please leave me a donation to cover the bill. Not gouging anyone, but I still had to pay the bill and calls to Haiti, Puerto Rico, and the UK got father expensive. On the plus side, all of the neighbors got to know each other over the daily cookouts – several folks pulled out their grills and hibachis: one was strictly for coffee and hot water (tea), others for hot breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. I did get to try some great new foods and others I would never try again. All due to a hurricane or six.

    Everyone I knew that only had cell phones were in trouble after Superstorm Sandy, no power to recharge their smartphones. My landline still worked great. There’s a great invention to combat boredom — it’s called a BOOK.

    Yeah these days it’s more like June showers bring July flowers. Winter starts in November and lasts till April.
