You remind me of when I announce that I don't mind the rain,

...even when it goes on for days. 
Everyone always looks at me like I'm  crazy. 

People can express how much they love a sunny day, and proclaim it's beauty!  Then they turn around and complain about the humidity, in that same day they just called beautiful.

No one bats an eye.


Others can claim how beautiful the snow looks as it's

falling. Then criticize it after it piles up and inconveniences them. 

To this, others can nod their heads in agreement, and add their two cents, and share similar opinions, and it's all fine. Again, unfazed by the double standard.


Yet, when I say that I don't mind the rain, or God for bid... I like the rain, everyone sqwacks and is in disagreement with me.  I get all sorts of comments about  my comment, especially when I say," I don't care if it stops." 


I'm just giving a straight forward comment about my feeling toward rain. I don't mind being in it. I like to watch it. I don't care how long it lasts. I know it can be an annoyance, an inconvenience and it has been. That said, I still don't mind it. 😊 

At times, the rain gives me a chance, or an excuse, to not do anything! What's not to like about that? 


I also like the Songs about rain...especially the song by Gary Allan, titled,  😆 Songs about rain.  I love Kentucky Rain,  November Rain, Purple Rain, I Love a Rainy Night, I'm No Stranger to the Rain and I want to go outside in the Rain.
Just to name a few. 

Who knows why I like the rain? Maybe I was there for the 40 days and 40 nights of rain and I helped Noah build that ark. 😝 

Maybe because I'm a November baby?  My mother told me there was light rain, it was cloudy and foggy the day I was born, which was an Election Day.


So I really get your back to bed, in the dark bit. I find nothing crazy about that. In fact, I find it comforting.

I also like when it gets dark early too,  and enjoy daylight savings, switching back and forth.🍁  🍃🌅 🌝 but that's another story. 😝 



I've been so sad for those in NY dealing with all that flooding, and my heart and prayers have gone out to and for them. 🙏


@KBEANS, I totally understand your "kinship" with rainy weather.

You and I would get along brilliantly, @KBEANS.  I've always loved the rain.  As a kid I began a tradition of going out to the screened porch as soon as a steady rain began, taking a book to sit, read, and take in the scent and feel of the air.  Something both soothing and exhilarating about it.  Of course, any time I'm ready for a snooze, day or night, I'll open wide the window if rain is falling...  nature's lullaby, can't be topped by sound machines or apps.

Autumn is my favorite season, and I'm overjoyed to finally feel the changes as we slip into that lovely time of the year.

Also, I like the day-into-night and night-into-day time when the light is softly blending, twilight and pre-sunrise times.  Something magic in the air akin to that rainy atmosphere.

I hope your brother is having better and better days.  I continue to pray for him, for you, and for the medical folks who are watching over him.❤️

Thank you everyone! I am worn out on doctor visits, tests, more tests, more visits. It's exhausting. I'm in good hands though.  Fingers crossed it'll be fixed soon. 🤞🏻
