I awoke to the pitter patter of rain AGAIN and temps in the mid-30s. Well, those pesky April showers are sure to be expected, but temps just above freezing? Mother Nature’s memory has clearly gone kaput because she has forgotten what the “real April” is supposed to be like.
The rain stopped, and after it finally lightened up outside, I peered through the peep hole and it looked promising. I opened the front door to get a better look, thinking I’d dash out to the car and run it a few minutes, then maybe … just maybe, get in a petite walk as well. The pavement was mostly dry, but when I looked over to the next block, there were dark and brooding clouds in an already gray sky, so it didn’t look too promising. Before I could contemplate my journey, suddenly a jagged streak of lightening lit up the gray sky followed by the meanest crack of thunder I’ve heard in awhile. In fact, it was so loud it made me nearly jump out of my skin. I figured it was the precursor for round #2 of the rain, and besides … I was not going to make Buddy an orphan by getting hit by a bolt of lightning. Sure enough, I closed the door and walked down the hall and the sky opened up with a pounding rain. Great weather … if you’re a duck.
