Fitting the Weather Stereotype

Some people like to joke that in Buffalo, if you don't like the weather, just wait a moment and it will change; how true or different than the norm this is is not known, but in the last day or so, we have had some variety.
After several days of heavy rains (downpours causing flooding at times), we have dried out to some extent in Buffalo and Western New York and the temperatures have been in the 80s for highs for several days, the first time this summer. Sadly, the floods and related problems have become fatal, with at least two people's deaths in WNY attributed to the rain.
Yesterday, while Val and I were getting ready to cook some chicken out on the grill, I was in the media room checking e-mail and taking my tie off while Val was checking her laptop's e-mail downstairs. We both started hearing what we thought was rain, but the sky was blue with white clouds and a bit of sun. We both checked and, yes, it was raining out, and did so for about 10 minutes due to a small but very heavy and gray looking cloud over Buffalo's West Side.
This morning, things have been a bit foggy around here and apparently very foggy and moist around other parts of Western New York, and the temperature will be in the mid-80s today with what appears will be high humidity. Oh, joy.
