Howling wind and rain here in Dublin and temperatures predicted to drop below 10 degrees C tonight. What a lousy summer! The wettest June on record in parts of Ireland–which is saying a lot! Only the second wettest on record in Dublin, however, which is staggering for this transplanted Southern Californian to contemplate.
Of course, when they say wettest, they’re basing that on how many inches of rain have fallen, not over how many days. I’ve heard people say that this is the 9th straight week with rain falling every single day in Dublin.
I haven’t kept count, but that sounds about right to me. And they’re predicting it will keep raining through August.
