I think the world can be divided into two types of people, those who like rain and those who don't. My middle brother and sister-in-law live in Arizona because they like the sun. They call in the middle of December and brag about their 70 degree weather. They enjoy sitting poolside and feeling hotter than hot.
I admit that sometimes in the dead of winter it does sound appealing, but mostly I would really miss rainy days. Sure the southwest gets awesome monsoons in the summer, but they come and go quickly. I like a rainstorm to linger and saturate.
Yesterday it was rainy. Today it is still raining. The ground is soaked, the verdant hillsides are looking more pacific northwest than mid-Wyoming. I am feeling right in my element. I always feel a bit more when there is rain. Every song seems to have a deeper meaning, even New Kids on the Block seem to have some sort of important message with their music ( for the record I am already trying to push NKOTB on Cordelia).
