When It Rains People Get Depressed

Updated on May 5, 2011

Unless We Are Made Of Paper What's The Big Deal

For most things rain is the best thing that can happen

It gives us life

Without water we are as dead as a door nail

So I say let it rain

When all the grass and flowers and gardens don't have to be watered

What a treat

More time for me to do other things

i understand when we just have day after day of rain then it is a problem

Flooding can occur and disaster strikes

Fortunately that is not the case most of the time

We just have a change in weather and it rains for a day or two

Then we are back to nice weather with the sun out

I know if you just got a car wash and it rains it can be a real pain

So just check the weather forecast before you throw down a few bucks on that well needed car wash

Either that or grab some soap and those big car sponges and time to do it like when I was a kid

The old suds and a bucket and give your car the personal touch

Scrubbing off those highway bugs and dirt covered wheels and bird poop

It can be so much fun and bring back a lot of memories

How about a nice walk in the rain

Find one of those waterproof jackets and put it to good use

Years ago there use to be those bright yellow rain jackets that were plastic and smelled.

Now that is a reason to dread the rain

We all look like a bunch of ducks waddling around in the puddles

But those days are gone and I for one am happy about that

I had special bright yellow boots to match for the special occasion

If you are a business owner that rain can keep the customers away

Sometimes it can also bring them in to shop to get out of the rain.

For me I just love the feeling of the rain hitting my skin

I love the sound of it pounding off of everything including me.

I do remember getting all wet from walking n the puddles on the way to school as a kid

Maybe it was uncomforable to sit all day in those wet sneakers and damp clothes

It never stopped me

It was too much fun

It makes all those sun shiny days at the beach even more exciting

Sometimes you get the sun showers that don't last long at all

They have come and gone before anyone has even noticed

You hear people say did it rain?

I was inside I didn't notice

When?

People love to talk about the weather in conversation especially the rain

There are some people that get so worked up about the rain and it never even rains

I think that is funny that's all

It is raining here and I hope it pours

I love watching it and later I will take a walk in it

So for all those who don't know rain is on the way

I don't know when and I probably have more than a 50% chance of getting it right

Because the weathermen are wrong 60 % of the time anyway

I just opened my window to listen to that sound again

I have been caught running around the house trying to close all the windows when the rain comes down like cats and dogs

Then I have to grab a towel and clean up the mess

I laugh that I never noticed we had so many windows in the house

Maybe we just grew up believing what others told us to believe

From singing songs about the rain

Rain rain go away

Come back another day

From there on out rain was doomed from the start
