Rain is the leavening that makes my spirits rise that much higher when the sun returns.Having grown up and lived in places where it can be cloudy and gloomy and damp for days on end, I didn't at first understand native Coloradans' carping when the sun is covered for more than a day. "It's sooooo depressing! It's so gloomy and awful out!"
But now I'm similarly spoiled. Sure, it can rain and I don't mind. But I fully expect it to get nice again toot sweet, gosh darnit.
Today did not disappoint. It's t-shirt weather for walking, and Sophie is delighted to have been divested of her heavy sweater. The better to roll in the cool grass!
