Sat. humidity was beasty in the city and by afternoon, even thinking cool thoughts and reading in front of the AC didn’t seem to soothe. Doors were jammed, the ice beast was screaming and thoughts were sagebrush. Suddenly teeming rain lashed Rittenhouse and even Pine St. with its dependable drainage was flooded within minutes. There was zero visibility and motorists scrambled to pull over. I dashed out in it immediately natch.  Nothing like getting soaked in the middle of the street in bare feet. The humidity was lanced like a boil and the front was so rapid that it was sunny and still raining with I spotted only the 2nd rainbow I ever remember seeing directly over the city in the 30 year I’ve lived here.
