Where I live, rain is a weird thing. It happens very few times out of the year and when it does, you either get flash-flooding or just a sad sprinkle. A lot of the time, one part of the city is getting a sad sprinkle and the other is impossible to navigate because of the inches of rain. Also, everyone in town suddenly forgets how cars work and driving is like walking on hot coals: if you're good, you might make it, but if you're not, your feet might get burned off!
The weather fluctuates so randomly, it's hard to tell what's going on. While I was at home today, it was sunny for a moment, then a 2 minute torrent of rain, then sunshine again. We like to say "If it's a 10% chance of rain here, it's more like a 10% that YOU will get rained on." There will be times when the entire center of the city is green and beautiful and alive while the part where I live, a little more in the deserty part, will be bone dry or vice versa.
Today is one of those days.
I love rain, it's my favorite weather condition, but lordy when it comes down like that...I think the picture aptly describes my emotions.
