A Rainy Day

I have heard that it is a good idea to save for a rainy day. That being, a day with no money.

I have heard that April showers bring May flowers.

I have heard it rain here to the extent of 16 inches above normal in 2009. After a really bad drought the year before it was truly a blessing.

I have heard rain here for the last 3 days. The dogs are truly ticked off.

There are several reasons to not love rain. There is the getting wet when the sig other takes you out to eat. Of course that points to the fact the sig other is actually taking you out to eat.

There is the mud the dogs track in when they go out to do their business. Of course that points to the fact that the dogs actually do their business outside and not in the house. Thank goodness for that!

In the summer rain means growing things like grass which has to be mowed. Of course that means we have actually been able to get grass to grow after years of trying.

There is the dark dank feeling of a winter rain. Of course that provides the best reason ever to stay home and hunker down and read a good book.

A cold rainy day can present it's own problems. The high humidity and low temp make the heat come on and dry out my skin. Of course I could go outside and fix the problem for a while.

Rainy day? Sounds like a winner to me.
