The storm off the California coast finally arrived in Phoenix this week. Normally I love the rain! Living in sunny Phoenix is definitely convenient and “happy” so the rare drizzly days are treats… but one of my friends has a beautiful outdoor wedding planned on Saturday at the base of the Superstitions — and our ground can’t absorb this much water easily. For this reason and this reason only I am going to bid the rain to go away — at least until Sunday!
I felt very Paddington bear-ish this morning (sans marmalade sandwich, suitcase, and matching red wellies & hat) — okay, realistically my only commonality with that little Peruvian is my big blue rain coat (image from flickr).
However, if I had a pair of wellies such as he has (JCrew always has the cutest ones with little plaid, beluga whales, polka dots, or mini crabs on them) I could splash perfectly in the shiny puddles reflecting the early morning, pre-dawn streetlights. Wouldn’t that be a fun beginning to Thursday, twirling, sing, and dancing in the rain?
