The seemingly endless rain here, followed by heat that must have made the record books, leads me to think of the chaser crewmen who served at American Bay, Corfu, in WWI, living on small, wooden boats that were wet in wet weather, and hot in hot weather. Lt. Dole notes in one of his letters that the decks of the boats would become so hot that you couldn't touch them; and the many photos showing bedding and clothes draped over every available inch of lifeline to dry tells of the miserable conditions below decks in inclement weather. At least the swimming was good!
Best wishes for good weather, wherever you are.
