Ain’t no Sunshine

Another Storm (536, EM5)

Seems like deja vu.  It rains, and then it rains again.  Sometimes, just to add a little spice to the regular rain, it really, really rains.  As in downpours.  Deluges.  Flood-makers.  All of which just adds to the incredibly high humidity (dew points in the low 70’s, like you might find in New Orleans or Charleston or Savannah).

This little storm popped up last Friday (July 5th).  I think it’s the same one that pounded the area south of the lake – mostly around Pittsford, NY.  If that’s correct, then this is the storm that did some damage at Oak Hill Country Club, the site of this year’s PGA Golf Championship.  It flooded some fairways and knocked down a tree or two.  Not that I care.  Golf isn’t exactly my favorite sport.  The whole damn course could have been washed away and I wouldn’t have shed a tear.  Well, I shouldn’t say that.  The PGA will bring a fair amount of money into the local economy.  That’s a good thing.

That is, of course, if it ever stops raining.

    Nice capture Paul. If nothing else this kind of weather you’re having makes good photographic opportunities. But high levels of humidity can be difficult to deal with and isn’t exactly friendly on camera gear either.

      Thanks, Cedric. Yeah, I really dislike high humidity. When we lived in Las Vegas I didn’t really mind temperatures in the 90’s. You had to be careful to not dehydrate, but it wasn’t all that uncomfortable. Here, 85 and humid is just nasty. Not as bad as a blizzard during the winter, I guess, but definitely uncomfortable.
