Re: Rain, sweet rain

Ain't that the truth! She's probably never had to shovel her way through
drifts in order to get out to the car to dig to find it, either! Lucky
her! But, hey! Doesn't she live in one of those coastal places that has
hurricaines? I lived through one small hurricaine the year I lived in
Florida and that was enough to last me a lifetime!
