    In summer I often see rain evaporate before it hits the ground.

    Sort of like the rain clouds around here…their rain evaporates before it can hit the ground. Very interesting to watch this happen… ;)

    It’s not the humidity, it’s the heat!

    I’d sure like to be in that sprinkler with you Red and Rover…you just have to be quick to get hit by the drops…It is hot, as you know what, here in So. Cal today and tomorrow…over 100…I hate summer now, and hate when it comes around…

    I just love those kind of days. Hot and totally dry.

    In memory of Nat King Cole:
    .
    Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
    Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
    Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
    Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer
    Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
    Then lock the house up, now you’re set
    And on the beach you’ll see the girls in their bikinis
    As cute as ever but they never get ‘em wet
    Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
    Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
    Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
    You’ll wish that summer could always be here
    Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
    Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
    Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
    Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer
    Don’t hafta tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
    Or some romantic movie scene
    Right from the moment that those lovers start arrivin’
    You’ll see more kissin’ in the cars than on the screen
    Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
    Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
    Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
    You’ll wish that summer could always be here
    You’ll wish that summer could always be here
    You’ll wish that summer could always be here
    .

    Couldn’t be global warming. It wasn’t invented yet (at time of this strip – 50s 60s).

    @ oldwolf1951….see lyrics above. You start, I’ll join in!

    I agree re: Beach Boys. They’re teen fun, but this is a got-the-WHOLE-gang-together song. An’ a one…an’ a two….

    The phenomena is called “verga”, here in the US Southwest. The rain shows up on weather radar but all the ground gets is wind gusts.

    Driving across Nevada, I tried to clean the bugsplat off my windshield while the car filled. The fluid evaporated the second it hit that glass and before I could wipe it across.
