“Gray-tember” 2011: Your chance to complain

If you’re missing the blue skies, that’s because the last truly sunny day occurred September 13, almost two weeks ago.

Also consider: September - with four days left - is at least the fifth wettest on record with 8.36” of rain, mosquitoes are swarming, mold spore counts are through the roof, and mushrooms are sprouting like mad. Two men who sampled the fungi are lucky to be alive. Don’t even get me started about the humidity.

What’s driving you most nuts about this weather (or do you like it)? Vote in the poll below.

Comments welcome too :)
