I remember a time when rain showers used to last for an entire afternoon, if not days at a time – and snow showers could last for many days and leave snow piled up around and it would sit around for weeks or MONTHS before melting away. Those days I fear are long gone because I have not seen any long snows or long rainshowers in quite some time with rare exception. Rain is a beautiful thing because it smells really nice, it helps green things grow, and it makes other people stay indoors, so when you go out for a walk, it is really nice and peaceful.
Perhaps too many people sang that “rain rain go away” song, and now it is? Bummer…….
