I love rain.
That is probably why when my husbands job took us to Seattle the thought of gray and rain didn't upset me. Then I lived there.
Today here in the mid Atlantic we are having a very beautiful day.
It is gray with a nice steady rain and honest to God I love it!
I don't love it for months on end. But I do love rain a few times a month and today is beautiful to me. I don't like constant sun. I don't like constant anything so I guess that is why I like to live where there will be more than one season. I only wish we had 4 equal seasons.
Winter seems much longer than fall to me. Fall being my favorite always seems to be short changed.
This all brings me to Bonnie, yes Bonnie of the witness protection program who's blog I may not link. She is a friend on my Facebook and she had a map showing the winter weather that is looming. I didn't need to see that to be honest with you. She's taunting me.
You see for the last 3 months during the coolest summer I have experienced since moving here, Rick has been telling me we are in for a harder winter. Now there are acorns on the ground and his fall allergies have started already. Then the hummingbirds started acting as they do in fall on our patio. So he is convinced that this winter will be harder than last.
I want winter but I don't want it to be "more" than last year. Sadly he is usually right about this shit. (I may have to hurt him in his sleep.)
Then Bonnie posts this horrible map. The wench.
Here it is. I copied it from her super secret location.
We here in my little world are bordering Above Average and Much Above Average.
I didn't need that. Now you're in cahoots with my husband?
Bonnie, Bonnie, Bonnie, I liked you Bonnie. What are you doing to me?
So Bonnie this is strike one. No more of this shit is to be put out into the universe.
Strike three and I roll you under the bus and your super secret location is out.
You will need your buddies in witness protection to help you from some bad whoop ass from someone in the mid-Atlantic. Be careful. I hear she's a mean mother.
