Upson, I'm sorry, but I'm wracking my brains to remember a summer when it rained every day for more than four days in a row. I've lived in the area my entire life (I'm 57) and cannot remember "weeks on end" of rain every day. I have more memories of summers when we hoped for rain for our depleted reservoirs.

There have been many years when rain happened nearly every weekend -- shore businesses take a beating. Don't know what weather pattern that is, but it isn't funny.

In July 1969 it literally rained for WEEKS - everyone said it was because we'd just landed a ship on the moon...

Like I said, I don't mean all-day rain, but the daily late in the afternoon/early evening summer thunderstorm.

That may well be true. I remember the moon landing and Chappaquiddick, of course (same weekend), but I was very depressed that summer, so I've forgotten much of that period.

Citing one freakish summer of almost 40 years ago doesn't support the assertion that during the summer, it's normal for it to rain every day for weeks on end.

But now as I think of it, there was a period within the past three or four years and it may well have been summer, when my standard reply to "How are you?" was "Waterlogged." But again, it was freakishly rainy.

I have clearer memories of special attention to conserving water due to drought. My behavioral changes have stuck.
