Well, the summer is officially over. I guess it was pretty much over when I woke up to 20-degree weather a few mornings in a row, but now it's dark dark dark, and rainy rainy rainy. I love it. There are puddles everywhere. My car's back bumper isn't covered in dirt anymore. I don't have to push the recirculate button in the car when I start driving down the dirt road because there's no dust anymore. The trees don't look so pretty as they did in the bright sunshine, but my skin was really suffering and I'm ready to have a little more moisture in the air.

I love this weather!

I wish I could send you across the parking lot to pick up and drop off the kiddo at school! I wonder if they make waterproof pants that don't look stupid.

One of the dads that came to get his daughter had an umbrella flip inside-out in the wind today. With all that wind, they weren't exactly shielded from the wet anyway.

I used to have to take the dog out twice a day in this kind of weather, and stand there for half an hour while she did her thing! Of course, when it got really bad and I was toasty warm inside I could ask Cory to do it, but I kind of like coming in out of it and getting warm.

Cory walks in this weather a lot, from class to class, and he uses those zip-off omni-dry pants. They get wet quick but they dry just as quick. Of course, I don't think I'd like walking around with zip-off pants but they might make omni-dry "real" pants too...

See, now that's the upside to giving your preteen kid a cell phone! :-)
I was furious at my parents for giving one to my then 12 year old daughter, but as soon as I realized that I could call her from the parking lot at the Boys and Girls Club, well.... I realized that I could learn to love it. I don't think I've set foot in there once since then. :-)

Ahhh. Well, that just won't work at all. :-)
I do remember those long, soggy, winter days. Glad mine are over. Hope yours are as dry as possible. :-)

Yep, forecast says rain today, rain tomorrow, sprinkles the next day, showers the next, and so on and so forth.

I really missed this time of year. Except for the whole driving in the dark and the pouring rain thing, where you can't see the lines on the street. But the rest of it is great!
