Rainy Season

We're guaranteed to have a dry fall, and let me tell you why.  I just bought a new rain coat.

It arrived in the mail last week.

When you spend a lot of time outside, solid rain gear is essential.  I found this one in a work clothes catalog.  Serious stuff.  It wasn't super expensive, but it wasn't dollar store material, either.

It's got seams that reflect light, and it has plenty of pockets.  I'll be happy if it stays in the closet.

NOAA has already predicted a quieter than normal hurricane season.  As I look at the map of the tropics, nothing's on the horizon.  Not even close.

On one hand, I'd like to see if the coat lives up to its billing, but a monsoon means someone's property is damaged, lives are affected, and we all can do without that.
