🎶rain rain rain🎶

with props to aretha

 its been raining
 pretty steadily
 since
 friday afternoon

 i suppose
 i should not complain
 since
 its not snow
 and
 its the end 
of
 march

 i do not consider 
rain
 to be 
going out like a lamb

happy as i am
 its not snow

i do remember
 oddly
very vividly
 one late april day
 many
many
 many 
years ago
 as
 a girl scout 
our troop 
went to the united nations for a tour
 it was late april
 as i said

 we wore our uniforms
 with
 little cotton ankle socks
 penny loafers 
or 
those shoes
 with
 straps across the instep
instead
 of oxfords lace ups

 little light weight
sweaters
 cardigans

 when we came out of the united nations
 it
 was
 snowing
 big
 wet 
flakes

 we were 
seriously
 under dressed
 for
 such weather

 it was
 a 
long walk
 to
 the subway

 i really do remember
 how cold it was

 ever since
 i have been
 very 
skeptical
 of 
spring

 its a skitzo season
 weather-wise

 so
 i am doubtful
 til
 proven wrong

sunday
 i wore my yellow hooded slicker
again
 went to polished
 then fairway
 then home
 for
 another
 day
 indoors

  2. After 5 inches the first week of March, we had 1 1/2 inches in 36 hours last week. This for a location that averages only 23 inches of rain for a whole year!

  4. Can I just tell you how unbelievably sick I am of WINTER in general. The snow just will not stop. So over it. Glad you just got rain. It sure doesn't seem like spring though.
