It's Raining

The sun came out for a while this morning and I thought for a while it would be a nice day today, but then clouds thick and grey as chimney smoke moved in. Soon an old cold rain began to fall. Slowly at first, then it came down in buckets. 
I'd originally planned to start work on the deck and house, but my carpenter didn't return from out of town as soon as he expected so we'll begin the work later this week or next week when the weather improves.
So I spent most of the day writing which is actually a good way to spend a rainy day. 
When I started work for MaBell years ago, I worked as a phone repairman and cold rainy days were my least favorite days of the year. 
These days, aside from the fact that I get a little melancholy, the rain doesn't bother me as much.

When I drove down to see my mother this afternoon, I shot this little piece of video of the rain, with my phone.


  1. "Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was holding Bobby's hand in mine"

    I think of Me and Bobby McGee everytime I'm driving in the rain.

  2. I was thinking what Barb mentions!

    So you were once a lineman. Hmm. OK, another song lyric comes to mind. LOL

  3. I was an operator for Ma Bell..."You're number puleeze..." I bet they no longer say that...lol...Hope someone else was driving while you were taking that video.

  4. Your rain video was a very special touch to your blog post today. It has been so dry in Texas the years we have lived here, now when it does rain I never complain, no matter how much it frizzes my hair!

  5. We often wonder what rain is like. Thanks for the video.

  6. Wow!! Now that's what I call rain!!! Glad you drove to and fro in safety!! Take care
