Weather

            I want it to rain again. A bout of rains here in Arizona in February made me long for distant lands. Specifically, I wanted to be back in Alaska or Washington State. I remember the feeling of the cool summer with light showers, where the humidity hovered around 80%.
I can say with no reservation that 60 degrees with 80% humidity is the perfect temperature. I also love that at any moment, the skies would loose tiny raindrops, nearly imperceptible, that would evaporate on contact with my skin. I marveled at that; how my light jacket would be wet, yet my skin dry.
It was even better when the skies really opened up for hours at a time. I didn’t get the monsoons of the desert, fortunately, but I could enjoy the lengthy showers for hours.
I’m still working on a way to get back to that. I’ve had enough of the desert for one lifetime.
