The neighbor says to me, “I like your boat”. “Thank you”, I return. Her reply, “Do you know something that I don’t?” And we both laughed, anything to break up that dreariness on a rainy, cold and dismal day changing the usual commentary to the weather. It’s so nice to see the sun shining this morning, even if occasionally obscured by clouds. Rainfall for the month of May has been above average, and the sun extremely scarce. April had significant rainfalls after melting 30” of snow. The streams, lakes and ponds are swollen with rushing water and any additional thunderstorms send the water over the banks, and make waterfalls where none have been before. Walking through the backyard requires mukluks for sure! The poor golf courses in the area are struggling to find days to mow let alone allow carts off the cart paths. (And a good drive will land into the fairway, not on the fairway!) So we wait and think that better days are coming, and that a dry and sunny day will soon allow our yard “ornament” to reach the lake.
I hope you can find the humor in your rainy days, too.
