It was a dark and stormy night. It was a dark and stormy day. It was a dark and stormy night… again! I won’t go into the next day because I think you get the picture. Irene breezed through with wind and rain, but Lee; well she is just sticking around night and day. She brings thunder, lightening, and the only thing missing is a haunted house.
The day, no matter how dark and dreary, must go on. So as you set out for work, school, or chores, how do you keep dry?
Do you grab your boots, your umbrella, and maybe a raincoat? Within a few minutes you discover that rain is sneaky and it sometimes comes down sideways so your umbrella is not doing the job you thought it would do. You naively stand on a curb and find that drivers have no courtesy where pedestrians are concerned and you are now dirt spattered and drenched. If your boots are not the rubber kind, your feet are now residing in a swamp. A gust of wind comes out of nowhere and your umbrella turns inside out. You arrive at your destination; your carefully coifed hair is stringy and glued to your head making “bad hair day” an understatement. Don’t look now but you have arrived at The Rocky Horror Picture show, and you are the star attraction.
As I sit typing in the semi darkness of this once again rainy day, I wonder will it become yet another dark and stormy night? Could that be chains I hear rattling?
Last week I was on vacation in fantastic sunny weather and wasn't here for Paint Party Friday but I'm back now and I'm joining in PAINT PARTY FRIDAY once again.... so...see you there! Thanks to Kristin and Eva-- our hosts.
