Rain boots, rain hat, rain coat… let’s see, I don’t have any of these. I just wear what I usually wear and get wet. Some men have these things. They look out the window and dress for the occasion. If it’s snow, it’s winter gear. Rain, they wear a rain coat. Hot summer day, shorts and a shirt. Come home, and they change into their nice slippers. Not me. I have one pair of boots. And count myself lucky to have those. I worry about people who have less than I and have nowhere to get out of the rain.

I love rain because it’s not snow. At least it doesn’t pile up and freeze and get in the way. We need rain because it helps the water table and we need water. Plenty of good clean water. but the best thing about it is it will be over soon and the sun will come out.
