Haiku in the Rain

Blog Post #269

Hallelujah! The rain is here.

According to the weather reports, we are in for rain — lots of rain!  Hooray!

Finally, the snow and ice will disappear, will be melted and washed away by the torrent of rain that is on its way. The temperature has risen and it’s warmed up considerably (daytime highs in the double digits)

After a month of cold, snowy days, the warmer weather and rainfall are a welcome respite.  I cannot recall a winter where the snow and ice lasted the entire month of December. Thank goodness for the rain!

I’ve got my Bogs and my umbrella — I’m not afraid of a bit of water — and I’m more than ready for some puddle jumping!

I’m only a little concerned that there may be extensive flooding because of all the snow melting…

The rain cascades down
drumming on the window panes
streams of water flow
