This Ain't No Monsoon

Start of Rain
All today's papers say that the Southwest Monsoon, which starts at the bottom of India and travels north through most of the year, hasn't even begun yet. The India Meteorological Department is predicting that it will reach the coast of Kerala, India's southwestmost state, on 30 May.

After months with just a couple rains, I thought that the three afternoon rain showers we had on consecutive days last week meant that monsoons were here, but it sure doesn't sound like it. Some of Don's co-workers thought so too. Either way, the monsoons are coming . . .
