The rains have increased in both frequency and intensity lately. The one overnight last night was probably the worst so far… it was enough to jolt me awake and make me feel like I was back on the shores of a Wisconsin lake, on the camping trip where we lost all but one of our canoes. Albeit without the tent tipping over and getting completely drenched.
If it was able to wake me up when the police couldn’t, that’s saying something.
The worst was the humidity that followed. People like to say the rain “washes away the heat.” Not necessarily. Depending on the time of the day, the storms make the ensuing humidity more oppressive. Especially if the sun is coming out strong after. When the morning commute had tons of Thai locals carrying hand towels to wipe their sweat as they wait for the Skytrain… *cringe*
