|Rain one minute, sun the next.|
I remember, as a kid, being chased down a street in my neighborhood on my bike by a thunder storm. This sounds crazy, but I could see it coming. Within 30 minutes, the sun was back out and it felt like the steam room at the YMCA with fewer old naked men in towels. This phenomena is particularly acute in the summer months when warm air off the Gulf of Mexico turns into rain showers in the afternoon. But, the rain is notoriously difficult to predict given how isolated they can be. One city block might get an inch of rain in an hour while two blocks over, nary a drop. There are even parts of the city currently suffering drought conditions while others are completely normal. True story.
