Here Comes the Rain, Again!

Tropical storms, rain, wind, mess, and chilly. That is the forecast.

Ugh! When will the heat begin?

But, as I was walking out of the club after racquetball this morning I noticed the smell of the rain and the cleansed earth in the air.  So, even though it is raining, and I love rain, there are some positives--providing that the rain eventually gives way to summer.

But the rain is overwatering the plants in the pots outside--much like frosts at the beginning or ending of the season, the potted plants need to come in out of the rain!

So much rain and so little time.

At least everything is green right now and fully prepared for the summer. And, I have heard that we have been spared the plague of the cicadas.

So with the rain giving way to the need to mow the lawn and the continued greening of the landscape, it is not all bad--just depressing. The gray skies get me a bit down though.

But, hey, the weekend is almost here! There is a bright thought.
