When you live in a desert--like I do--you learn to appreciate rain. I mean, in a big way. Like taking walks in it, splashing in puddles, drinking from the sky. So I was on pins-and-needles when the weatherman called for rain in Los Angeles this week, waiting and waiting for the big event.
And planning accordingly. Because part of the fun of rain is pulling out the sweaters and jeans and sweatsuits and boots and umbrellas and jackets.
And deciding on which warm, hearty meal to make for dinner.
And which DVD’s and books you have on hand for the after-rain snuggle-in?
So tell us, am I the only one who gets all excited at the prospect of rain? Or have you had enough already this fall?
