Wishing Away The Summer!!

I absolutely love this rainy photo by Val Proudki, but I have to say I am sick of living it. The rain just won’t stop in NYC this summer. I got caught in a torrential downpour this morning as I was halfway to the subway and had the displeasure of sitting in the highly air conditioned office in sodden jeans for much of the morning. Fun!!

Surprisingly according to Debs and her fun Friday facts this is not the wettest NYC summer on record. Apparently that particular honour belongs to the summer of 1976, however just 6more inches and 2009 will take the title.
Roll on Autumn I say, I've had enough of this farce of a Summer.

I heartily agree.

Some people prefer the rain to bright sunshine. I like moderation!

Hope you're working a bit less.

Hi Kitty, I like a balance of all weathers, but this incessant rain is becoming depressing!!

Working slightly less - still ramping up the newbie, but vacations are coming ;-)

Oh, I'm right there with you... but last night, while sweeping up the kitchen (of all things!) I had the thought "Don't wish away the summer..." I should really just live in San Diego, as my happy-weather point is 75 degrees, 80 max. And the winter is just not my favorite time of year.

Yesterday, we had terrible floods here in PA - on the way to a restaurant to meet folks for brunch we nearly turned back, because of the 6 to 8 inches standing water at all the intersections! It was nuts! Made it there safe and sound and by the time we were done indulging, it was sunny out! Crazy day!

Hope your work life is getting more tolerable!

Hi Spandrel,

I am just the opposite, I am not a massive fan of summer, but I do love the clear seasons. I think it would drive me crazy to have pretty much consistent weather all year long.

Sorry to hear about your floods though, that's crazy. Fingers crossed the weather improves :-)
