Rain, Rain, Rain!!

Do you see this? This is the view out of my office window at 4:30pm. It is OVERCAST. It has been like this all, wonderful, blessed day. I have not seen that nasty, evil sun ALL DAY. This, to me, is heaven.


Tomorrow, it is going to RAIN. No, really. They said so on the Weather Channel. And whenever they say 70% chance of rain (which they NEVER say), I'm taking that as it's going to RAIN.


Now Snoopy and I are doing the Happy Dance of Rain. And then on Saturday? Possibly more rain! It is ridiculous how excited I am about this. But since we are lucky to get 5" of rain A YEAR here (don't a lot of you get that from one storm?), it is a rare and blessed event. To me, anyway. I know there are some people that live here that would like the sun to shine 365 days a year, instead of just our normal 358 days a year. But tomorrow, will be one of MY days. Did I mention that the high tomorrow will only reach 69 degrees? And only 64 degrees on Saturday?? Excuse me, while I pause to dance once again.



I will be wearing JEANS, you see. Long pants, like the grown-ups do. A shirt with LONG SLEEVES. And even quite possibly...wait for it...a SWEATSHIRT. I'm sending myself an email right now to remind me to get that sweatshirt out when I get home and shake the dust out of it, in preparation for THE RAIN. HEE!!!!!

Yes, I know I've lost it. I've really made no secret of the fact that my sanity has gone missing. Read the title, for heaven's sake.

All is not right with the world when Texas has more rain during the summer than all of the Southeastern United States. Now it's raining in Arizona? It's the Apocalypse!

You so better not have jinxed it. I will be blaming you if the rain does not pour down. I am doing the rain dance here, I would love to sleep in on Saturday and wake up to the patter of rain drops on my roof.

Enjoy your rain while we try and ward off the snow and COLD! I'm done with winter already and it hasn't even started.

LOL - I can relate! I live in L.A., and it is raining! Of course, this means massive car crashes on the freeways, "flash flood" warnings in North Hollywood...but I too love getting dressed in cold weather clothes - so long as it doesn't get below 55!
