Its one extreme or the other. Look at the crazy drought in California.

Afternoon daily showers during the summer is normal here.

We've had 4.36 inches so far this YEAR...

It almost always only rains at night here, too hot during the day for rainfall.

I South Florida I have had two 20 inch storms in the last dozen years. Thankfully our limestone quickly drinks it up.

Why can't a country as wealthy as ours just pipe and canal the water around?
Realistically, that would require paying market value for water.

This has been the wettest summer here in my part of PA I remember. Normally in July it starts getting dry, but it seemed like it rained every day. I've been needing to re-seal my driveway and anytime I get to do it they predict rain. Fact it's supposed to rain today...

I have seen a ton of low siting vehicles drown on the streets of Miami Beach and all over South Florida.
