Okay, but I HATE the mud that comes with the rain. My horde of kids (and dog) drag it in, and then there's more work dumped on me. Blah!
But I LOVE running in the rain, as I did today.
Went for a 7-8 mile run from my house through downtown Denver around lunchtime (I wanted to see people today for some reason) to City Park and back. Sunny skies when I started, and the longer I ran, the more ominous the clouds looked -- puffy cottony grayish blackish clouds. And then the drizzle began when I as about a mile from home. Awesome!
Soccer practices were cancelled -- the grass is so delicate here in the mile-high desert that the parks and recs around here feel like they need to protect it; it may never grow back.
So, that gave me a chance to make a huge pot of chilli in my pretty blue "le Creuset" dutch oven and a batch of southern (perfectly sweetened -- not too much and not too little) cornbread, and rice. (No dropping by Chipotle or throwing together tuna melts or Campbell's tomato soup w/ grilled cheese sandwiches -- or worst of the worst, cold cereal -- for us tonight.)
And I downloaded some rain-appropriate songs from iTunes.
