I was pondering the weather in Northeast Wisconsin this morning, it’s gloomy and oppressively hot. Between heat and humidity, I’d say it felt more like the US’s Pacific Northwest than the Midwest. And it’s been image that  way all summer. We’ve been plowed under with 80+ percent humidity for months, and every once in a while the temperature dips to remind us that we’re in Wisconsin.

It is the last day of August, tomorrow is September, when cool and wet is supposed to start converging upon us. It will be a relief after months of hot and humid. But the one thing we’ve had plenty of this summer? Rain. Lots and lots of rain. Like I said, Pacific Northwest.

And that’s one thing that is certain, where there are a lot of clouds converging, you get rain. If you’re unlucky, you get thunderstorms and lightning also.

That is something I’ve been considering also of late. As you move to cloud, let us assume that you have an internal cloud, two external providers (like any other vendor, to keep the primary honest), two external cloud storage providers, and possibly a few stray apps that are served in a manner similar to cloud but are SaaS in a pretty dress.
