Whenever the forecast calls for 70% chance of rain, I pretty much believe it will actually rain. It might even turn into a heavy downpour or storm, but don't go all out and take an umbrella or get ridiculous. It is sunny Florida and bright blue skies will surely greet you if you head out in rain gear, galoshes and a plastic bag pulled tight around the camera. I'm not fooled by those phony 20-30% rain chances around here. They keep weathermen employed but are typically a bust and seldom produce more than a sprinkle and even then only enough to throw nasty wet muck up onto the car and windshield. 70% or higher and I plan to get a little wet as I navigate puddles or flooded-out intersections in search of ideal combinations of rich, deep saturated colors and long reflections in rain-soaked streets. This office building, with its modern walls and angles in bright shades of sun-soaked colors that remind me of Santa Fe, combined all the elements that screamed at me Stop. Now. Take my picture. Hurry, the light is just right. No, dummy, I didn't mean stop in the middle of the street and block traffic. Oh, well. Too late. Hope it was worth it for one silly shot.
