….of ‘rain’…


…”How to use an umbrella without being a public safety menace”…

Indeed it’s been said that “when it rains, especially in cities, many people carrying umbrellas become walking eye poking hazards.”
“A modicum of effort and awareness of one’s own surroundings” will keep everyone safe, according to a journalist who felt compelled “to write seemingly ridiculous articles giving instructions for the use of common handheld tools designed to make our lives more comfortable.”

A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water. ~Carl Reiner

The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. ~Patrick Young

Rain! whose soft architectural hands have power to cut stones, and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains. ~Henry Ward Beecher

The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you’d just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency. ~Susan Allen Toth, England For All Seasons

Whether the weather be fine,
Whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather,
Whatever the whether,
Whether we like it or not
~Author Unknown

Cheers to a fine Friday & weekend and remember if or when ‘the-going-gets-tough’ there’s ALWAYS ‘sunshine’ after ‘rain’!
