Rain One Minute - Sunshine & Blue Skies The Next

Rain one minute - sunshine and blue skies the next......that is pretty typical Florida weather! It is also not unusual for the sun to be shining while it is raining!

Bay West Condos, Belleair Bluffs Florida

While I was out taking care of a few things for a client yesterday, a torrential downpour took place. From the security of the balcony, I took a photo of the rainstorm and then went back inside to complete business.

It wasn't a half hour later, as I got ready to leave, that I took the second photo. The rainstorm was over and the clouds were parting to let the sunshine back in!

This is why I love living here in the Sunshine State!

Hi Barbara Jo. Living in the "Sunshine State" does have some nice rewards for nice weather alright. Glad you were able to take care of some business, and not need an "umbrella" once you completed your business.

Hi Barbara Jo, I used to love the funny weather in Fla. I think I was born part fish because I never minded the rain showers that sometimes you could set your watch to them. I thought they were fun. What I didn't so enjoy in the summers was the rush of humitity right after the rain. When I was little I used to love walking in the rain and would do so as often as it occured.

Barbara Jo my friend, the first year I lived down near Key West, there was a rainstorm that came along. The funny thing about it was the fact that it was raining in the backyard and not a droop of rain fell in the front yard or on the house itself. The backyard looked like a small swamp after the rain stop. I had not ever seen that kind of thing happen before.

Have a good one

Isn't the saying: 'If you don't like the weather in Florida, wait a minute'?

LaNita - those are Bay West condos........I sent you a listing already.

Jerry - yes, I was lucky!!! But I keep a baseball cap in the car. It is easier than an umbrella!

Joan - it is out and beatiful!!!

Kathy - we had rain last night as well but now it is beautiful again. I just got back from a walk to the post office to pick up the mail.

William - I did not know that you used to live in Florida...............

Dale - yes, that sounds like typical Florida weather!!!! People that are not from here need time to get used to it.

Gabe - that is exactly what everybody says!

Larry and Sheila - wish the entire country would get the blue skies back as quick as we do down here!

I really enjoy that when it happens here.  My grandmother used to say that any wish you made while the sun was shining and it was raining would come true.  Every one of your wishes should be granted by now....but then, look where you live!

Barbara Jo my friend, some folks sure do need a bit of time to get used to the weather. I use to go out walking during Hurricanes and I would also go surfing just hours before a Hurricane was to hit.  

Have a good one
