A Day Like Today


This is what it is like in my town today.

It is:

Rainy
Saturated-wet
Foggy
Dull
Gray
Dreary

It made me feel:

Low energy
Like procrastinating

You know, in the Southwest, there are many years in which we do not get enough of those rainy, saturated days. In those years, we get very, very tired, waiting for winter and snow in order to have some down time.

PS: I will be responding to your e-mail. I just got swamped!

Elisheva your comment is interesting. The problem here though is when it rains, even heavily, the pace of life does not slow down. Even in rain, people are still driving up to 30 mph over the speed limit on the highway. In this area of CT at least, near NY City, we are very faced paced. No one lets anyone slow down their pace for rain. So the mood of the day is slow but life marches on.

The only time things slow down is due to a small number of slow drivers on the highway which can clog up everything, or when there is a car accident or broken down car in the rain, then rush hour is maddening. I am glad I don't have to be in that regularly.

I was in San Diego once and drove to Los Angeles in a simple light rainstorm and no one knew how to drive, massive traffic jams, very weird to my friend and I to see mass numbers of people scared to drive on the freeway in the rain.
