Rainy Mondays

There is something "just about right" when considering a rainy Monday.

It celebrates the beginning of the work week with the tears of the workers falling on the land to remind us that the weekend is a long way off. 

Yesterday was windy, rainy, and cool, it is hard to say cold when the temperature thankfully remained above freezing. Although the weather was not particularly nice, it was better than the alternative: snow. We received about six-tenths of an inch of rain, translated into the white stuff that falls from the sky that would have been almost 8 inches of snow. By some measures, on average one inch of rain translates roughly into 13 inches of snow--but that number can vary a bit.

The rain was better.

I made a funny decision as I left my car yesterday to cross the parking lot into the building where I work. The wind was blowing so hard that I decided not to risk my damaging my umbrella and kept it folded. I probably looked amusing caring a folded umbrella in a rainstorm to the building.

It was Monday, after all. What more can one expect?
