i.e., Florida’s Giant Lubber Grasshoppers!
|Lubbers seem more reliable than the clouds|
Not to worry, they won’t hurt a soul,
Although they may put a dent in your garden.
|Dry seasons can extend into June when the rains are late|
At some point June will finally get going.
On average it’s our highest rainfall month.

The image above displays a radar-derived image of the spread of rainfall for the month of May. Basically, if you mix all those pixilated colors together into a single unified stew, it simplifies into the single number: 2.3 inches for the month of May (as bar graphed it the rain chart below.)
|Lubbers are good at hanging on|
As you can see, south Florida is a pretty big area to pull a single number from.
I wonder what the Florida wide distribution of those Lubbers looks like?
