It is after 0430 and the rain is falling.
My poor yard is never going dry out. It is insane how much rain we have received in the past month. Most of the month January was drenched with the wet stuff. Gah, I am tired of rain.
Please, don’t confuse this with a undying love of heat.
Serving in the Middle East broke me of liking heat. I arrived in the oven of Kuwait in March 2004. When I stepped off the bus, the heat took my breath away. Literally, I felt like I a loaf of bread. I was the dough, and the heat was the furnace. In March, it was 117 degrees.
After two weeks of train up, we drove into Iraq. Surprisingly, it was cooler in Iraq than it was in Kuwait. However, it did not take long for that to change. The hottest day I saw while deployed was over 140 degrees. It was so hot, the only way to test it was via a wet bulb test.
So, I suppose I am okay with rain. I tend to favor a nice 70 degree day, with a mild breeze. As much as I complain, the weather does not fall under my purview. Hence, from this day forward, I am done complaining about it.
I hope you all have a wonderful day, regardless of what the weather may bring.
Until next time,
