Caution: Splash Zone- Unexpected Giggling May Occur

A quote for the day:
“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” -John Ruskin

The Nor’easter has dumped a lot of rain on us during the past 24 hours. Rivers run through ordinarily dry areas. Roads have been closed.

I like the rain. I really do, in moderation of course, as with all things. I like the clean feeling that comes with the rain. My car has not been this shiny in months! I like the tall rooster tail sprays my car made as I drove to work. They were award worthy, I’m sure of it. I like the rapping sound it makes when it comes tapping, tapping at my chamber door (a reference to Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven, yes, I like that, too).

Think back to when you were a kid. Remember how much fun it was to splash in the puddles. You’d don your galoshes and rain coat and run full force to a climactic leap- kersploosh! Your mom or dad probably turned red in the face over the involuntary shower. Now, be honest. Are you your mom or dad on rainy days? Go put on your galoshes, grab your umbrella, and perform your best rendition of Singin’ in the Rain. Don’t forget to splash.
