Singing in the Rain

I love rain. I think I loved rain long before Gene Kelly danced and sang in the rain in the famous movie musical, “Singing in the Rain.” Living in Florida, I eagerly anticipate the rainy season, not just for the rain but also for the excitement of afternoon and evening thunder showers. I even love the rain from tropical storms, so long as the accompanying wind, rain, and lightning are not severe. I love putting on a raincoat and walking in the rain. I love hopping into my car when a rain shower starts and driving around the block just to get the car “washed.” I love the raindrops when they are heavy enough to pound on the skylight in the living room. I love the sound of rainfall at night when I awaken to hear it intruding into the quietness of the night. I don’t think I have ever let “rainy days and Mondays” get me down. Bring on the rain. I have a smile on my face.
