A Passing Weather Predicament

This morning, I awoke to the sound of raindrops hitting my window.

With such force that, in fact, their noise sneaked in and took over my last dreaming moments; showing up as unrecognizable static, which surrounded me and eventually was able to lure me to a conscious state.

The sky’s darkness lingered slightly longer, and the clouds resisted parting, even for a moment, so that light could appear, and witness the world.

Later, on my approach to the city, I spotted groups huddled together, sharing umbrellas, and shielding themselves temporarily from the unwavering downpour. A passing weather predicament bringing people together.

I like standing out in the rain.

It is odd that folks were sharing umbrellas. Maybe human kind isn't as far gone as I thought.

maybe this world needs more passing weather predicaments to unite it?

I love to wake up to the sound of rain.

(J--I make a pretty nice skull on a mug for Halloween, and maybe a ghost on a mug too, and I am thinking of making pumpkins for the first time in awhile if I can get my act together....the pumpkins are carved like a jack o lantern and have a candle inside)

Interestingly, my husband and I have weathered (literally) several hurricanes since we got married. I never feel as close to him and to my family as I do when we are safe in our home behind the shutters listening to the wind and rain pelt on our home.

Gary,
Nope we are safe from Fay, but more may be coming! Cool, about the Halloween stuff…I’ll get with you to let you know. :)

Hammer,
Rain is nice. Human kind is not all bad, I see things everyday that remind me of this. :)

Fortune,
I think you’re right!! :D

Thanks Dad! :)

Hemu,
I’ve never tried dancing in the rain, maybe I should! lol

Arv,
