subtropical climate

Summer is the wet season in south Florida. Every day around 3pm, we get a storm - one of those build-an-ark-and-gather-animals storms - that lasts about 30 minutes and dumps an amazing amount of rain on us. Often, the rain is accompanied by Jove-is-displeased-and-will-smite-us-all levels of thunder and lightning. And then it's gone. Just bright sunshine bouncing off the pools of water slowly seeping into the soil and limestone. Consider this photo a "before" image.

Why, then, did I decide to schedule a field visit with FIU students at 3 this afternoon?
