Oh hi.

What’s that you said?

You don’t want to live in a place where you’ve seen rain falling from the sky for 53 days in a row either?

Odd. Never heard of such a thing.

Wait… what?

Speak a little louder please.

Oh… you want to fly me to the Bahamas? On a one way ticket? And first class?

Sold.

Thank you very much.

[I take sugar in my coffee by the way. I just knew you would ask.]

    Seriously. Is this rain ever going to stop? If it doesn’t, I’m definitely jumping on a plane to the Caribbean.

    Give some of that rain to us. We haven’t had rain in months, our lakes are incredibly low, and we have fires all over the place because of how dry it is!

    We got snow yesterday in Chicago. Snow at the end of April… Yes, I think that deserves a ticket for the seat right next to yours. Thank you to the generous person paying for our trips!

    It could be worse. It could be snow falling from the sky, instead of rain. And let me tell you…in April, snow is extremely depressing. I will gladly join you on that one-way ticket to the Bahamas.

    Me too. I love rain. Just not when I wake up and realize the husband has the umbrella in his car…at the airport. Or when it causes a power outage at work and I’m forced to teach without a smartboard or a computer….

    Central Florida here… where it’s 90-freaking-degrees, and we’ve currently got a humidity of 92. Walking outside isn’t so much walking as it is swimming, and I’d currently sacrifice my left leg for a good thunderstorm.

    I’ll trade ya.
