I love the rain. . .

Has it been over a month since I’ve posted? Wow, I’m getting to be as bad as my wife. I don’t really have anything specific to talk about – this is really just a post for the sake of posting.

I’m ALREADY tired of the summer. Is that wrong? I like sunshine as much as the next fellow, but heat and humidity is just not my bag. The fact that we had such beautiful weather this past weekend (low-mid 80s, practically zero humidity) just makes the impending heat and humidity of the next couple of days seem that much more oppressive. In fact, I was looking at the forecast for Friday, and Accuweather.com is currently predicting a high of 70, with overcast skies, and rain in the evening. Rain!

I love the rain. I almost love a cold, dreary, rainy day as much as I do a beautiful sunshiny one. Kevin, who I roomed with in college, I’m sure could attest to this personality-quirk. I find rain soothing. I love the sound of it as I’m falling asleep. I love drinking a hot cup of coffee and reading the paper (or a book, or the web, or watching a movie, etc.) while it’s raining outside. Oh, and my grass desperately needs it.

So bring on the rain.
