Who’ll Stop The Rain?


Honestly, I don’t mind the rain. It requires a bit more vigilance when riding a bicycle or driving a car but there are many good things about a rainy day. Have you noticed how clear our sky is after a good rinsing? The air smells so crisp and good. It helps keep down the dust. I get fantastic photo opportunities. I love this region and wouldn’t move for anything.

Looking ahead, we’re going into a pretty good weekend. It looks like we’ll have 70-degree weather through Sunday with minimal chance of showers, so get out and enjoy it. There’s plenty to to this weekend. I’m having a Hotluck to celebrate a school milestone. Capitol Hill is having a garage sale. There are a plethora of Farmer’s Markets (trust me, grab some fresh asparagus or sugar snap peas while they are in season), SIFF continues through Sunday, and many more events.

Have a heads up on an event? Let us know in the comments.

    I don’t see how someone can be so optimistic considering how gray it’s been for months and months and months. Please, share with us how you’ve managed to stay above the curve.

    I see everything as a choice. I can choose to be angry about being stuck in traffic or I can choose to use the time to listen to some music or read a book (I don’t drive, I bus). I could choose to be irritated that I need to leave my apartment to volunteer or I can choose to enjoy spending an hour with an elementary school child who just wants to play monopoly through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. I can choose to be upset that it’s raining, or I can toss on a hat, grab my camera, roll up my pant legs, and go for an hour long walk with my puppy who honestly doesn’t care if it’s raining or not, he just wants to get out and sniff life.

    I have plenty to be stressed about in my life. For example, I just finished finals for 4 classes in a pretty intense quarter at BCC but overall I knew that it was temporary and that in a short period of time (starting today), I could sit back, relax, and not worry about it anymore.

    Well, to let others know that sun was on the way most likely. Plus to share my photo, I thought it was pretty neat.
