What Comes Around, Goes Around

It rained for a couple of days. On and off, but never completely dry for any length of time. It just never seemed to let up and we didn’t know if we should carry an umbrella, a rain hat or sunglasses. People from southern parts of the country couldn’t understand the weather patterns we have up here.

I checked, my Doppler radar map, and behold! The system was circular and we were pretty much just far enough from the center that the wet and dry areas were visiting us in dismal regularity. Around and around the storm went and it never moved in any forward direction; stuck over our area.

What goes around, comes around. What went around is coming around again in a few hours. It was sunny for a bit earlier today, maybe tomorrow will be the same.

As you get down south, Florida, the Caribbean, the showers and storms tend to move quickly. They are strong, of course, and not just a soft rain like here, but at least when they are over, they are over. A few minutes, maybe half an hour. Not at all like these rainy days that may last for two or three.

Rainy days are good for getting things done. We aren’t tempted to hang out in the backyard sunning ourselves, or sleeping in a comfortable chair on the piazza. We’re inside, it’s cool and wet out there, so we might as well get some stuff done in here. Like, catching up on this blog.

Apparently the further north you go, the longer the rain periods. We had flooding, we had a glimpse of the sun, and having taken notice, I planted flowers and belbs and spread some sod the day before. They were al lhappy to get this rain.

Stay inside? Uh-uh, not me....Mucho photos of swollen rivers, falling leaves and a basket of agaric mushrooms. I even missed NASCAR!
