It's Raining, It's Pouring, But There Is No One Snoring

Because I live alone, there is no one snoring on my couch. But I can hear the rain coming down in buckets outside of my window. I thought it was supposed to clear up a bit, but it sounds pretty steady.

Today I had to go to two libraries--my local library and one in the next county over. I checked out two DVDs in self-checkout, but apparently they never showed up on the system, even though the scanner "beeped." I took care of that. Then I headed to the closest Pierce County library about 20 miles from me to return the book that RGD checked out for me that I finished.

Thankfully, it did not rain during the drive. I was on the road during the rush hour time frame. These first few rains of the season can be treacherous, because people forget how to drive when the roads are wet.

I must admit that I love the sound of this rain, when it is still warm enough to leave the windows open while it rains.

We get enough rain over here generally that I never forget the sound of it coming down in bucketfuls. Here, 2 weeks without rain is officially termed a drought!

The rain makes the road slicker, so you can go faster - right? The same with ice and snow (or it would seem based on how people drive). emoticon :smile:

I think it's mostly the Californians who have moved north to our beautiful area. LOL

It is very similar weather here and there. But we've had such a long period of dry weather this season. Even the bit of rain we have been getting, we haven't heard. Tonight is peaceful with the sound of it.

Texans apparently believed the same thing. Every time they got ice, you could seem 'em on the news footage stomping on the accelerator as they started losing traction. I love the people who STOP moving in the snow, blocking the lane, then can't get moving again and wondering why they can't.

Just because you live alone doesn't mean that you CoralLevang can't snore. I have heard women snore just like men.

However, I am not asleep yet. Therefore, it's raining, it's pouring, and no one is snoring right now. emoticon :winking:

People in Portland always forgot how to drive in the rain, which ridiculous with the amount of rain that they get.

That sounds like people here with the first snow. I try to stay in during that.

It really has not rained in Central Louisiana for at least a month or so. We had a brief shower for about ten minutes, but that is all.

We've had higher than average rainfall this past summer and so far this autumn. However we've been fortunate to not have any rain for the last week, because we've had a crew installing a new roof on our building and I dread to think of the potential leaks that a heavy rain might cause in an unfinished roof. They're almost finished though, the last touches are supposed to be done today.
