The rainy season here in tropical New England

Yes, a weather rant. We have had a stretch of weather here that can only be described as tropical. It hasn't been especially hot-we've had highs in the mid 80s F- but I don't think we've gone 24 hours without some precipitation in the last two weeks, and high humidity the whole time. We've had quite a few heavy downpours, and a couple of days where it rained off and on all day. This is on top of the very wet spring we had. The pattern the last few days has been thunderstorms in the late afternoon, like this was Florida or something. My pumpkin plants are in danger of rotting away. I swear I saw a three toed sloth in the tree outside this morning.

I hear Europe is roasting, and much of the Western US is very dry, and hot as well. How's the weather where you are?
