I Bless the Rain Down in Africa

We are (I'm told) approaching the end of the rainy season, but you'd never know it from the quantity of water falling from the sky. Most of the time it only rains for a couple of hours a day, but that's a couple of hours of pretty serious rain. It was especially bad for a few days last week, when the gutters overflowed and the streets were awash right at going-to-work time. I was really happy to have my giant umbrella, my knee-high approved-by-the-queen rainboots, my high-clearance SUV, and driving skills acquired in Houston where torrential downpours are fairly commonplace.

But today is Sunday. I have nowhere to go and nothing to do, so I'm perfectly happy to listen to the rain on the roof while I lie in bed with a book and a cup of tea and feel safe and dry.
