Blue skies and sunshine? Time to elect a new weatherman.(57)

Might as well head home. This wasn’t an auspicious day for a bottled water vendor.(83)

The weather had been perfect. Until she decided to wear her new shoes. (71)

I love the beat of rain on pavement.  It’s rather like music.  In fact, I can almost hear the lyrics:

It’s a girl band day,

   Let Jay Turser guitars play.

  No beating rain, just beating drum,

  Instead of soaked and cold and numb.  (127)

    Those weathermen have a lot to answer for, don’t they? :-)

    “>I>Don’t know why
    There’s no sun up in the sky
    Stormy weather
    Since my man and I ain’t together
    Keeps raining all the time“

    Determined to get her
    favorite food she elected
    to trudge in the downpour
    looking for the familiar
    stall which was not
    at its usual spot

    Oh, the poor weather people…They have to deal with a lot of complaints…too hot, too cold, you were wrong about the weather. I rarely hear anyone say, “The weather girl was right on every day this week. Good for her!”

    It’s a bummer for the woman that it’s raining on her new shoes, AND that she has to walk on a wet cobblestone street…ankle twisting scenarios come to mind.
