We are in the middle of a stormy couple of days in Wisconsin.
Last night the lighting was giving us quite a show while we were watching Intervention (tear) and the thunder would sometimes shake the windows. I woke up this morning to the rain coming down in sheets and had to DRAG myself out of bed because it was so nice to lay there listening to the storm. Ok, I was listening and Shaun was doing some heavy mouth breathing in dreamland. Rain is to be expected in April, but I do have mixed feelings about the extreme amount we're getting.
My budding plants (no winter casualties that I can see!) and grass really need it
Our patio/siding/windows needed a good cleaning
I've always liked the sound of rain
93% humidity does not bode well for my floor poly curing, or for our basement, or for my hair. Seriously, 93% humidity shouldn't be legal. Along with 93% of reality TV.
Oh yeah, there will be puddles in the basement
Our gutters aren't big enough on one side of the house, so water just plummets off the house and soaks all the wood trim
I still haven't gotten our rain barrel hooked up. FAIL.
Pier 1 has a 15% off coupon good today only, and it sucks to shop in the rain
I hate getting rain on my glasses - HATE IT
It is really dark outside, so I can't take decent photos for the blog
So, the bad totally outweighs the good. Do you like how I do a 'pro and con' list, like I can actually do anything about it? I guess I can think "STOP RAINING PLEASE!" and hope mother nature listens. Are you getting lots of April showers?
