    Rain is a good thing, It is true, it rains on the just and the unjust, and sometimes it just rains. Thanks Jimmy!

      I agree, but as the temp gets more and more above historical levels I hope we don’t get these swings of 2 weeks drought then two days with 4 inches of rain then drought again. But we’re entering a new age so we’ll see.

        Agreed, if we were in charge of weather we wouldn't see drought conditions, then floods, then more drought and heat. I'm thankful for the rains. I'll not pray for rains and cuss the mud. I'm not saying floods are good, but given the choice, I'll take rain over drought, however it may come.

          Being a Mississippi flatlander, I recognize that floods on the Mississippi River are what made the soil in that part of the state so rich. But, the floods are also what makes that part of the state so trying. I remember Paul Harvey having a short poem that ended "dam me will you, **** you."

            Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.

            If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes.

            It is best to read the weather forecasts before we pray for rain.

            The captain had been telling how, in one of his Arctic voyages, it was so cold that the mate’s shadow froze fast to the deck and had to be ripped loose by main strength. And even then he got only about two-thirds of it back.

            The rain is famous for falling on the just and unjust alike, but if I had the management of such affairs I would rain softly and sweetly on the just, but if I caught a sample of the unjust out doors I would drown him.

            We have not the reverent feeling for the rainbow that the savage has, because we know how it is made. We have lost as much as we gained by prying into that matter.

            Shut the door. Not that it lets in the cold but that it lets out the cozyness.
            Consider Noah’s flood—I wish I knew the real reason for playing that cataclysm on the public: likely enough, somebody who liked dry weather wanted to take a walk. That is probably the whole thing—and nothing more to it.

            Winter is begun here, now, I suppose. It blew part of the hair off the dog yesterday & got the rest this morning.

            When a person is accustomed to 138 in the shade, his ideas about cold weather are not valuable. . . . In India, “cold weather” is merely a conventional phrase and has come into use through the necessity of having some way to distinguish between weather which will melt a brass door-knob and weather which will only make it mushy.

            Yes, the weather is bad, and if I were dealing in weather it is not the brand that I’d put up in cans for future use. No, it is the kind of weather I’d throw on the market and let it go for what it would fetch, and if it wouldn’t sell for anything I would hunt up some life-long enemy and present it to him. Failing in this, as a last resort I should probably take it out on the big bridge, dump it into the Mississippi and start it to Europe via the jetties. I’d unload it someway, and that quickly, too.

              I have no garden this year but my allergies are in full rage and rain always helps with relief.
