There’s little to do on a rainy day but sit, listen and peer out the windows. The dark gray clouds that produce the water that runs through the gutters and across the driveways trap us in this warm and dry spot on our couch with nothing more to do than to wait it out. I love summer showers and the distant rumble of thunder it’s soothing and relaxing and takes me back to my childhood.

So pitch the umbrella back behind the chair. Don’t be afraid of a little water. Just grin and bare it walk outside and dance in the rain. It’s a great day to be alive!
