Jungle weather

It's August, which means heat and humidity is bearing down on most of the country. In some parts, there is more heat than humidity, and they are suffering from severe drought. Lucky for us, we are not having a repeat of last year's 100 year drought. We've had a lot of moisture come through this summer, so much so that I have not had to worry about watering my lawn much. In fact, some members of my family have equated it to living in the rain forest since we seem to have an afternoon shower every day and the humidity feels like a wet blanket. 

We've each adapted in our own way, and the newest member of our family has taken to hiding in the palm tree, looking like a fierce jungle animal waiting to pounce.

O.K., maybe not that fierce.
