Retreat towards the classics

Today was the first day since I moved here that hasn't been a beautiful sunny day.

Today was a a beautiful rainy day.

Why am I blogging about something superficial like the weather? Because the rain was the most significant event in my life in a long time. I'm not worried about wasting years of my life, I've got plenty left, but it's starting to get boring.

was it the warm rain of clouds exploding on a day that was otherwise too swelteringly hot, or the stormy angry rain of the atmosphere throwing a tantrum and the sky throwin' down the rain atcha?

or was it a different rain? those are the florida ones. the chicago ones are similar, i s'pose, although less intense and not nearly frequent enough. i thought yrs might be more like a florida one. describe!

also important, did you play in it and/or get soaked?

There was no explosion, no sweltering heat and no anger.

That stuff is so east coast. This was a laid-back, calm California rain. I didn't really get soaked; I was running errands while the rain was going on. There are days in St. Louis where you'd get just as wet as I did that day without any rain; I imagine Florida's about the same, but I've never been there.
