Today I spent several lovely hours visiting with my parents, eating a nice dinner and talking. Driving up was nice because the sun was shining and I could actually see patches of blue sky (unusual sight lately!). But soon after I reached the lake on which they live, the skies let loose big-time.
Then rain pounded onto houses, obliterated the mountains on the other side of the lake (it's a mile wide) for a few hours. Nonstop torrential downpour.
I wasn't sure whether driving the hour home out of the mountains was wise, but did it.
As I drove away from their lake the downpour slowed to steady rain.
Ten miles later it was a drizzle needing only intermittent wipers.
Another five miles and.... everything was totally dry,
and remained dry as I continued southward
all the way back to my dry-roads home turf!!
Isn't it like much in life?
We so often can't imagine the goodness that awaits us simply because we can't see it yet.
(It's so much easier to know where you're going when you carry and USE an umbrella when it rains. Literally and figuratively. So as for me, I keep my real umbrella handy. And sure do try to always remember my personalized 'umbrella' of healthy habits ready to deploy as needed when the 'rain' is all I see and feel!)
It has rained here almost every day for the past week, we have had some terrible flooding my home has not been damaged by this but I have friends who have lost so much. The 10 day forecast does not look much better 50-60% chance of rain everyday. I hope we all get a little sun soon, things need to dry out 1659 days ago
It's been raining solidly for days here too. I hope we don't have any more flooding. Very unusual to get so much rain in winter. We usually have brilliant blue sky and westerly winds and cools after 3 pm. I agree with you about abouit keeping the personalised umbrella handy as well. Glad you had a nice visit. 1660 days ago
