“Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary. ...”
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I suppose a month of showery and downright gully-washing days shouldn’t annoy us, considering the preceding bone-dry, lake-lowering years we complained about. Then again, after all the intermittent rain we’ve just had, maybe there isn’t enough moisture left in the heavens to send down a good, two- or three-day soaking and get it over with.
