Here Comes the Rain

After the long hot drought of 2008, I'm thrilled to say the forecast for today is RAIN, RAIN, RAIN!!! I'm so excited! I guess I'm not like normal people, because I get my inspiration from rainy days. Rainy days always perk up my mood and make me feel alive again. Rainy days make me feel like a real person. Rainy days help me express my feelings. Rainy days help me to write, to read, to clean, to live life without just going through the motions.

Here comes the rain
Here comes the rain
And I say,
It's all right

Kentucky Rain - Elvis Presley
(words & music by Eddie Rabbit and Dick Heard)

So I'm walking in the rain
Thumbing for a ride
On this lonely Kentucky backroad
I've loved you much too long
And my loves too strong
To let you go, never knowing
What went wrong

Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
And up aheads another town
That I'll go walking thru
With the rain in my shoes
Searchin for you
In the cold Kentucky rain
In the cold Kentucky rain

I like rainy days, but they make me sleepy. Not conducive to getting much done at work

I'm thinking rainy days beat snowy days -- unless it's 33 degrees and raining! Like today!
