Tallahassee FL- Sun rays and clear skies greeted people throughout the big bend area and South Georgia this weekend.
One man walking his dog along Lake Ella Sunday afternoon said, "You start to get moody when you don't see the sun for a couple of days. I think it affects the mood of everybody." After weeks of rainy summer weather, the mood of those strolling the shores of Lake Ella was bright. Even the ducks decided to get out of the water and enjoy a nice walk.
WCTV Meteorologist, Brittani DuBose explained, "It's been awhile since we have seen all the sunshine in Florida-- especially in Tallahassee. When, we have been seeing so much rainfall since July."
Although, Floridian's are used to the rain, this past month seemed to be a little more wet than usual. According to the National Weather Service...there were 25 days with measurable rainfall in the month of July. Even though July wasn't a record breaking month for rainfall it was the 9th wettest month in Tallahassee history.
And the more it rains the more Charles Mobley said, "It kind of keeps you stuck in the house...And it sucks when you have a small house and a lot of kids."
So today was all about bringing the kids out of the house to soak up the sun. Even a dog or two joined-- even though it got to be well into the upper nineties today.
The national weather service says Tallahassee has a seven inch rainfall surplus so for in the 2013 calendar year.
