The afternoon rains are becoming more frequent lately. I think another season is about to turn. Although the rain is a welcome relief from the heat, it can also be a hassle since the usual outcome is a power blackout. Because of the intense heat during the day, the rains usually become violent (i.e. thunder & lightning) at night. I hate lightning...because I'm afraid of it. I don't know why, but I'm afraid of it :-( Last Saturday the whole town experienced 2 hours of power blackout because of the rain. After the weather cleared up, it became hotter and more humid probably because water was already evaporating. Kainis!
