Apparently, this past June was the rainiest in New York history. We city dwellers tend to complain about summer heat – stuffy subways, heavier than usual smog, skyscrapers that block any sort of breeze. Personally, though, I’d much rather endure a heat wave than the monsoon season we’ve had instead.
The constant wet threat has compelled me to turn to my rain-weathering necessities, many of which should have no place in the month of July:
Rain boots – sandals, rain, and dirty city streets are not a good mix.
Light raincoat and a cheap umbrella, which blows inside out every other rainstorm.
Steaming soup, with a side of crackers.
More comfort food.
Fiery spices make the cool rain more inviting.
Beach daydreams, which should be beach realities.
Is it raining where you are? What do you need to make it through the storms?
