OK, the trick it to not stay out for too long....of course it would become unbearable if you're out all day, I have new found respect for the road workers here in FL and all other who work OUTSIDE...as it's not easy......we're "complaining" of situations where you CAN go back to AC...........imagine working with asphalt all day long........holly macro!

I foresee a very high electric bill in the future, and me shivering on the couch under blankets trying to keep warm in the air conditioning.
At least your AC can cool your house.

Yes the normal type of summer T storms do miss my place more than other places. The 17" of rain we can thank to upper level energy that set up over my area three times for that month giving me 7" , 4" and 6" on three very rare days.
Except that the data shows that it DOESN'T just "miss" Dana Shores. It RAINS in Dana Shores (SEVENTEEN INCHES in just one month!) just as it does in other areas of coastal FL. All your data shows is that you, like everyone else, has a selection bias. You perceive that storms don't rain on your corner of paradise when they in fact do. It doesn't mean that you are dishonest or anything. Just that what you perceive to be true is not necessarily what is really true. Even if you live in Dana Shores, it will still rain on you in the summer. Maybe not when it rains on everyone else, but when it all averages out, there will be rain in Dana Shores just as much as it rains on the entire area. Dana Shores is not immune from afternoon thundershowers.

This does not bode terribly well. I hope he adjusts quickly.
You poor woman..He would have to leave me, 76 just isn't warm enough.

Please post a link showing the rain amount in just Dana Shores. I too lived in 33615 zip code and I know that many times it rained all around us and we would have to water our lawn. It didn't happen every year but it did happen.

I completely agree with those who say the rain "misses" their area. I have lived in more than one neighborhood in different towns where it could rain hard just a few blocks away and we would only get a drop or two. This DOES happen. So I totally believe CHAS about him not getting rain in Dana Shores. It is a strange phenomena.

I know it happens in South Tampa, too. It's very weird.

Ever watch the new when they say TIA missed the rain or they show the least amount of rain time after time. It's like a force field.
