The June Monsoon

M.C. Escher
The internet says we have had two hours of rain today, whereas reality says something along the lines of twelve or more hours of precipitation interspersed with five-minute reprieves in the form of a cold, hanging mist.

This is a lesson to you—not a lesson on the terrible truths of our Northwest climate (I rather like it, actually—it makes for a very green July and August!), but a lesson on the dangers of relying on second-hand information. Go outside, I say: go outside, and see if what Google says about the world is true. I don't mean about the weather, entirely—this lesson can apply to your entire life, as well as to mine.
