I already knew that for about a month in the summer the Korean peninsula experiences it's monsoon season. I figured this thing was a gradual increase in humidity and rainy days per week. Well. It's a bit more intense than that.
Apparently the Koreans know just when the monsoons will start. Obviously there is some scientific clock in a Koreans body that starts ringing on the first cloudy day in the second week of June. She knew, just like our co workers that today's clouds and wind meant something else.
Sure enough it started to rain shortly thereafter. Now it's Wednesday night and it hasn't stopped once! Okay, it gets lighter at times but is met ultimately with heavier rain. The moments of mist means the coming of cats and dogs ready to scratch at your umbrella and windows, piss on your shoes, and prune your fingers.
Let me give you a preview of the Jinju 10 day forecast from weather.com: Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain, Cloudy, Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain. . . . . Sweet . . . .
Good news: Got health insurance.
