What's up with the downpours?

Here in Brooklyn, it's been raining and raining and raining! I feel like an idiot for not having a proper garden (even a container garden) planted, because this is prime growing weather: warm and wet. If I had some cherry tomatoes and some basil outside -- they'd be breaking growth records, I'm sure.

The other problem with the rain is that I find it less exciting to knit when it's humid. The yarn feels grabby in my fingers, and it's hard for me to get a good rhythm going.

I wouldn't be fussing about this in public, except that I just checked the weather forecast for the week, and after having had days of daily thunderstorms, now the rest of the week through Friday shows possible daily thunderstorms as well. Blegh!
