Summer at Last?

If there is one weather change between Denver and Kanazawa that drives me crazy, it is the rainy season. While Kanazawa has more than its fair share of precipitation anyway, between mid June and late July the rainy season brings even moisture than usual.

Actually, this year hasn't been as bad as last year. I recall a period where it rained nonstop for over 5 days, almost causing some flooding. While we didn't have any truly torrential downpours, it has certainly been gray and humid enough to keep me indoors much of the time.

That helps explain a distinct drought in my blog update schedule, I simply haven't been up to much of anything lately. The earthquake scotched a quick trip to Tokyo, and aside from another birthday party and a few couchsurfers, I have led a pretty boring life.

Luckily, the sun started coming out this week, even if just for a bit, and everything is picking up for August. Uchinada beach my be no Phuket, but it is better than no beach at all!

I guess you haven't heard about the intermittent torrential rains Denver's gotten this summer. It's still a desert, climate-wise, but there was some flash flooding last week and stuff. I blame global warming.
