i used to really like the rain. and now i remember why:
louisiana rains comes down hard and fast (these pictures it aint so bad; sometimes you wouldn't be able to see cross the street- and cars on the freeway hafta pull over to the shoulder so they won't crash and die.) and the rain here has sound too (thunder and lightening - and sometimes it knocks the power out so you get to light the kerosene lanterns and walk around in the dark thinking maybe there's ghosts in the closets) and wind blowing (woosh! woosh!) and the clouds are all these colors of gray (not just that same ol' dirty bath water gray you get in seattle). yeah, seattle doesn't rain. or whatever it does do aint nothing like rain... it's more like a water torture or something.
i'm fixin to go to sleep. i can sleep good when it rains out.
