"Actually it had never rained before or at lest not enough to ever mention it."

lol.... never rained before? So there were no plants away from lakes? How did people survive?

"This was because the earth's axis was at 0 and this allows for basically late spring conditions over nearly the whole earth."

No, that wouldn't be the case. The wobbling does have a lot to do with it, but it's more the angle at which the light hits our atmosphere (the more you diverge from 90 degrees the more bounces off) and the distance the light has traveled (intensity.) Also, are you suggesting that the comet impact is what gave earth its wobble? That would have had to have been one huge mofo of a comet. We're talking an extinction level event here, big boat or no.

By the way, you say that our air pressure used to be twice as great. Any idea what happened to all the air? And unless the laws pf physics changed after the comet impact, those miles and miles of water would not just 'hand there' and not condense into water. Especially at higher altitudes (colder temperatures) The vapor would crystallize.
