Capital Weather tells us that “May already ranks as the 5th wettest on record at DCA, and it’s less than half way into the month,” and I can honestly say – as my car sits in the parking lot with the top and windows down so that some of the water that leaked in can hopefully evaporate – that this is an honor I would happily refuse from the Academy.
We may not have to hold on to that trophy long, since CW also says that we’re looking at possible to probable rain from Thursday through Sunday. Since I can’t find their source data for those 4th through 1st wettest months, I don’t know how much more it would take to push us up into the next category. They can say it’s a good thing overall, but personally I’d like a chance to dry my sneakers.
I’d like a pony too, if anyone’s listening, but since nobody seems to be listening I’ll do what I’m suggesting you do: keep track of your umbrella.
