Rain, rain DON'T go away!


Utah has been experiencing some uncommonly wet weather this Summer... thus far. I know that most of the population out there is aching to have the really, really hot weather that comes from living in a dry climate. However, you that know me and have known my blog posts know that I am a lover of the rain. Indeed, I *heart* an overcast sky like I *really heart* a milk chocolate dove bar. I secretly long for the days when Summer comes to an end. I long to see the misty clouds draped over the rough mountains, and the colorful leaves of Fall appear. I'm not trying to rush the Summer, but I do so love my beloved Fall. The sights, the smells, the layers. Ohh, I love it! This weather just takes me back to it all over again. I just checked the forecast, and it looks like next week should be filled with some pretty high numbers, so I'm going to enjoy wrapping up in my blanket and listening to the falling rain outside my window :)

Friends, I must admit something. There is a down-side to Summer storms. I'm afraid of lightning. AHHH! There, I sad it! Now listen, I don't mind watching lightning from a distance, but I really don't like it knowing it's right over me. I especially don't like it when it seems to be striking all around the restaurant I'm supposed to be entering with my sis-in-law! Seriously, it's a scared moment you dunna wanna see. Thanks Sharon for just laughing at me and my childish fear.

Dude just move to NC! We get a rain shower nearly every day in the summer. Heavenly. And Sharon's not the only one laughing! ;)

Loving the rain! I wish every June could be this mild. I think Oregon is calling out for me to go and live there.

or what about the time when you couldn't get out of the car because of the lighting. We were parked just across the street at mom and dad's and we had to get in the house because it was down pouring. You FREAKED because of the lightning. I think I ended up driving you up the driveway so you didn't have to run the distance....silly girl.

Oh, I just love this summer so far. St. George summer rain is wonderful. It reminds me when I was a teenager, we would darken the house, blast Enya, and just chill.

Mama Cher, Ok, fine, it's Sharon said...

Oh, the lightning!! That was seriously the funniest thing ever!! My stomach hurt from laughing and I had tear! TEARS!! I don't look forward to weeks of high temps but would enjoy a little bit of dryness!

Erin...I think I am even more scared of lightning...seriously..I sat outside of my job in Houston once because I was too scared of the lightning. I called my co-workers from my car to explain why I couldn't come in just yet....they just sat in the window watching me...cracking up...I was cracking up and crying at the same time....
