No breaks at all in the rain - it's been coming down for a number of days now. That's good for the drought conditions but it is depressing to see and hear. I don't think I ever minded the rain so much until I lived in my 5th wheel. When it rained during the night I couldn't sleep because the noise of it pounding the roof was just too distracting. It's the same way in this mobile home, I can hear the pounding rain 24 hrs a day, and it is slowly driving me nuts!
When I moved to Sacramento in 1986, my sister (Amy) told me that first winter to not let the rain affect what I want to do or where I want to go. Just dress for it and go out when you want. I forgot that, and yesterday was so despondent I never did get dressed - just moped around all day long. Today is different and I've been to the grocery this morning and will go to the gym later on today. But looking out at the heavy rain falling, hearing it on the roof and watching it cascade down my windows doesn't make me feel like doing much of anything. I'm glad we are getting the rain even though it probably won't alleviate the drought all that much. Every little bit will help, but it sure is enough to turn my tiny yard green with weeds. So much for the work I had done on it last year.
Between dental work and a new roof that I can't prolong any longer, I'll be lucky to be able to make it to a few camping spots in Northern CA this summer. There are plenty I want to visit and with my senior access to the national parks and forests, the gas for my car will be the most costly part of a trip.
I wish there was more to blog about, but my life at present is pretty much on hold. Guess it's just that time of year.
