Rain, Rain, go away but not until we have enough of you!

RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY, BUT NOT UNTIL THE RESERVOIRS ARE FILLED WITH FRESH, SAFE, COOl WATER,  AND OUR LAWNS AND SPRING FLOWERS ARE RESTORED!

Yes, we need the rain, but enough already, or is it!  I just look forward to next week when the temperature will finally  be in the 70’s again, and the sun will show herself after being MIA FOR OVER A WEEK!   Too much rain brings on depression because the human family needs light and relatively dry weather with just a touch of humidity to be at their optimum!   Nobody enjoys or craves cloudiness, rain and dampness, although we need the water cycle to survive!    Regardless of our need, then, for rain, the faster we fulfill the proper rain amounts, and it finally stops, the happier all of us will be!

What can we do if it rains!  We can go out if we have to or want to, of  course,  but, if we don’t, it seems logical to become involved in indoor activities, where we can remain dry.  There are, of course, television, the computer, the smart phone, gaming, reading, and other hobbies.  Some of us practice dancing, singing and playing musical  instruments.  It  is a  good time to bond with our family members , including, of course, our pets!  We can use the indoor time to  train our pets or go outside to do so if the rain isn’t coming down too heavily!

So the rain isn’t that bad!  There weren’t enough April showers to inspire the May flowers to grow at that time, so it’s raining bucketfuls now in May!  Remember Gene Kelly In “Singing in the Rain” and laugh!     It was a great movie and it made the rain falling very romantic.  Think of his singing and dancing, and maybe we can go out and sing in the rain ourselves!  But don’t get arrested as he almost did in the movie!

Great posting again!  Until the next one,
