Why Does It Rain So Much In Florida During The Summer? And What Can You Do About It?

It’s summer in Florida, which means chances are good it’ll rain just about every afternoon.

They may be in a profession where they’re not allowed to go away during specific times of the year (such as accountants during the weeks leading up to Tax Day), or they might have kids who can only go out of town when school isn’t in session.

If you’re lucky enough in that you don’t have those kinds of limitations on when you can go away, you may still want to go at the “best” time.
