Rain, Rain and More Rain

By Dale Morrow

Rain, Rain, Rain, I started to complain about it and then realized, we really need it. Maybe not all at once, but we need the water table to get back to normal.

When I was a little boy, the summers always started with a rainy season. We knew it was going to happen, so we learned to adapt. The air is much fresher, the plants grow much better but people seem to drive worse. The last one puzzles me.

It seems logical to me, we should be more careful on wet roads. I believe that a lot of drivers think this is a good time to test their driving skills. With the added traffic the highways are dangerous enough, add the slippery conditions and after 5 p.m. you have bedlam.

I am happy to return to weather patterns from 30 years ago, but this new traffic is a little frightening.

The rain is enjoyable. It pleasures me to sit and watch it fall and breathe in the freshness. So I am going to focus on that pleasure.

The rain gives me a refreshing "View From The Road."
