so today . . . it is raining.
not just the mist that usually sends southern californians into a frenzy, but real, steady, noisy oregon-like rain. in fact, last night rollie heard on the news that they are predicting 18-24 INCHES of rainfall before the week is over! that is more rain that we usually get in a year!!
this rain is interfering with life, the way i live it. i couldn't put the top down on my car when i went to church this morning. i had to wear a real coat--one that is constructed for warmth instead of fashion--not suede or cloth or a sweater. i had to drag an umbrella around with me. (however, in deference to my oregon roots, i didn't open it for the "california rain." but when the oregon rain showed up, i was glad i had it!) i had to drive more slowly. but worst of all, when we went out to eat dinner, we had to eat inside the restaurant rather than at one of the outdoor tables.
so prepare yourselves--i foresee rainy blogs this week . . .
