(Pre Script: Saturday Steals tomorrow. Be there or don’t be.)
We’ve had rain here at a constant rate for 24 hours straight. And counting.
It’s unusual for Southern Alberta, and some people are grouchy about it. That’s because it’s a hint of months to come, and fall just barely got here so we’re not ready for winter yet.
I’m not grouchy, though.
A remnant of my Arizona born-and-raisedness is that I love rain in all its forms. It’s so rare an occurrence for us up that we’re conditioned to appreciate every blessed drop that comes our way.
Quick rainstorms are nice, but long, drawn out drizzles are better. The kind where the sun never even has a chance of peeking through the clouds all day. The kind where you’re guaranteed to be on rainy day schedule day at school (that’s where you get to stay inside during recess and play heads up seven up while the poor teachers are probably ready to kill themselves).
That’s the kind of day we had today and it was lovely.
Made even lovelier by this, the world’s greatest Rainy Day Song (warning: triple F-bomb at 4:03 but it sort of doesn’t sound like it so just pretend they’re saying something else):
What do you listen to when you need to feel cozy?
