It's pouring out there.

I hope I don't only post about the English weather from now on.

I can't help it. It's thrills me.

Out there right now, at least the last time I looked, rain was coming down in large rainy masses of rain.

Identical weather in Los Angeles would have shut down the entire city for three days. Bright red "STORMWATCH L.A.!" logos would have filled our televisions. A ticker at the bottom of the screen would have informed us of school closures and evacuation procedures.

Whereas here ...

Some people shield themselves with umbrellas. Some don't. Some wear raincoats. Some are fine in t-shirts.

One septegenarian was perfectly at home in egg-shell blue sweatpants, tourquoise blue jacket, and cornflower blue fishing hat.

It's pouring out there.

How about you? Do you shield yourself with an umbrella or newspaper?

I've never been to London but I hear it rains alot. It doesn't rain much here in Colorado -- we do get the occasionally snow. But I don't even own an umbrella. It makes my hair very unhappy with me.

I cleverly employed an "umbrella". I haven't had much practice with it, but I think I should get the hang of it before too long. I spent about half an hour swinging at the raindrops using the umbrella like a club, until someone showed me how to open it and hold it over my head, which seems like a much better way.
