Humid With a Chance of Rain

Becca and I got a bit of a late start this morning, and even though it wasn't hot conditions were uncomfortable because of high humidity.  According to local meteorologists there's a good chance of rain later today; abundant sunshine coupled with ample moisture creates "lift" that often results in thunderstorms.  We'll see what we get in the form of precipitation.  I decided to cut our daily trek a little short because Becca seemed to be bothered by the humidity.  We'll have to leave much earlier in the coming days because we're in for something of an early-June heatwave.
