Those ominous clouds from yesterday's post not only ushered in a pretty decent rainstorm last night, but they were the advance guard of a system that brought waves of rain today. I say waves because we experienced bouts of pretty intense rain interspersed with periods of sunshine. The day after we arrived here I set our rain gauge outside - by this afternoon it had already registered 50 mm/2 in. of rain. And this evening we had another deluge that no doubt added to the total.
I recall that we had similar weather experiences earlier this summer. I know that Florida bills itself as the 'Sunshine State' and now I've determined that there are 2 types of sunshine here - regular sunshine and liquid sunshine. Those 2 conditions go a long way towards explaining the jungle growing just outside the front window. During one of those 'regular sunshine' periods today I disappeared into it for a few moments to capture some images. (Now, don't misconstrue any of these comments as negative - I didn't have to shovel any of this precipitation !)
