"Soaking in" season

The term "wet season" is a meteorological term ...

Referring to south Florida's summer "rainy half."

Bar chart showing combined May and June rainfall from 1990 to present.  The long-term average is 13 inches.  Last year we got 16 inches of rain, most of it in May, and the year before that 25 inches, the majority of that in June.

But before the sheet flow can spread out far and wide.

The swamp sponge needs to fill up.

That's where May and June rains come in.
