Raining Cats and Dogs

It's raining cats and dogs at the moment.
My 9 year old is bummed because he wanted to go swimming and Wishbone is hyperventilating in her kennel. Thunder FREAKS our California native canine.

For myself, I love the weather. In California we didn't HAVE weather. Yes it was beautiful but every day the same is so... SAME. I love the Texas weather variety. Even after 7 years of living here it still gives me satisfaction. Of course it helps that by dinnertime it's a pretty safe bet that we'll have sunny skies and be back out in the pool. Floating under giant, white, puffy clouds in a big Texas sky.

So for right now I'll enjoy nature's fireworks and the rumble and crack that come with them. I watch the pool floats go skittering across the grass in front of the wind and marvel at how the rain can come sideways at the windows looking just like someone is standing out there spraying them with the garden hose. Soon the rain will lessen and the cardinals will be back to the feeder. As the storm dissipates and a power outage becomes less likely I hear the whirr of the Wii booting up.

How I love having WEATHER

You're right - we really don't know what weather is here in SoCal. For example, if it sprinkles just a little bit, the news media sends out 9 reporters and start screaming "Storm Watch!" It's almost funny and yet sad at the same time.

Congrats on finally doing this - I know that you've wanted to for a long time. I'm curious how you came up with the name of your blog - I'm intrigued...

Hi Andy, I'm in CA now, hope to see you while I'm here.

As to the name of the blog. It was inspired by the quote in the title bar, but I'll have to do a post about what caused me to choose that name...
I'm waiting for a day when I'm feeling inspired and lyrical. LOL!
