Rain, rain, go away


I know I had something I wanted to post about today, but do you think I remember what it was? *sigh*

It’s a rainy morning again, which I tend to like in small doses.  This doesn’t qualify as a small dose, given that we’ve had rain the last three out of four days.

The rains are expected to get heavy later, and strong wind gusts are on the menu as well.  This kind of weather makes me tense – especially when the family is far-flung all over town and not cocooned together in the family room.  It’s like I spend the whole time bracing for a tree to come crashing down on top of something important – van, house, person, whatever.   Maybe I have a good excuse for my nervousness, but let’s be rational here:

We’ve had more trees fall down on sunny wind-free days than we’ve lost during violent storms.

Hmm.  I’m not sure that helped me.  Now I’ll probably be twitchy walking under trees in the sunshine.  Oh, the joys of having something to be neurotic about!

    1. That certainly would have hit the spot! Too bad I can’t get away with that every time it rains – I’d have gone through several books this week alone! Looking forward to the sun tomorrow 🙂

  3. […] now I am preoccupied with thoughts of the expected hurricane.  I have a bit of a wind phobia, rational or not, and as you are probably aware, hurricanes bring with them a whole lotta wind.  […]

  4. […] writing this on Friday night (as I often do) and the wind is blowing pretty hard outside. I am not a fan of wind. It’s easier to bear now that our most dangerous trees have already been toppled by previous […]
