I need a break from the rain.
First, let me say that we have had the most mild winter of anywhere in the country. So while many of you were snowed or frozen in, we only had one week-long spell of hitting freezing temps. And that was back before Christmas. So, no, I don't have much right to complain.
But it's my blog, so complain I will! The weather has been truly dreadful lately. We had a week or two of back and forth - a couple sunny days, a couple showery days, repeat. Those are bad enough, seeing as how my mental status seems to be tied directly to the sun. Total roller coaster.
But then the skies pulled out the big guns. Or the big buckets. As in buckets and buckets of rain. And wind. And hail. And lightening. And a couple teaser sun breaks just for good measure. Of course they were quickly wiped away by the dark clouds. Ugh!
Maybe I have SAD. Or maybe, as I frequently claim, there was a mix up in life and I was SUPPOSED to be born somewhere where the sun shines more more often than not. But here I am in the Pacific Northwest, where summer starts July 5th and ends the middle of September. That's about two months for anyone counting. And our summers are spectacular. Mountains and lakes and water and blue sky and mild but warm temps. They are truly to die for. And then there's the other 10 months of the year. We survive those to get the summer.
I just saw the forecast for the next week. Another week before they predict a PARTLY cloudy day. Until then, more rain and showers.
Yes, I know I can move. And likely I will. But not until my son is out of high school, and even then it will depend on where he goes to college. So until then.... SEND ME SOME SUN PLEASE!! Before I lose my freaking mind!!
Here comes the rain again,
Raining in my head like a tragedy,
Tearing me apart like a new emotion...
PS - Hope you all had a Happy Easter! (See, I haven't totally lost it!!!)
