Rain, we love you. We love to see the transformation of our hills from dry brown to lush green. We love to stomp in your puddles. We love the way you empty out Disneyland so that we locals can ride our favorite rides over and over again with no lines.
We love the feeling of returning inside to warm baths, fires in the fireplace, and hot chocolate after a romp outside.
We do not love the way you clog our roads (which are not built for heavy rains) and the way you make our house dark during the day (now I understand how pacific northwesterners feel) but we’ll accept the problems you bring since you don’t come around too often. Rain, we’re glad you’re here this week. It’s the perfect week for reorganizing the playroom and the boys’ art studio and hunkering down inside together.
