|Looking out at the rain|
This is my fourth winter in the Pacific Northwest, and it's the first time I've gotten grumpy from the rain. Usually we get a little rain and mist, then some pretty white puffy clouds, a little blue sky, and then it starts all over again. Not lately, though. Day after day of rain. At least I have the gear for the weather, plus I'll be in Florida in a few short weeks. And it's supposed to be sunny again on Friday, so I'll be okay.
It would be nice to go out and do some shopping, but when I am sitting here all warm and dry, it's hard to make myself go out when I don't need to. I caught the bus before the sun came up, standing outside with my warm coat and umbrella and had a great workout at the Y surrounded by my friends, who were also grousing about the weather. By the time I headed home, I was happy to think of being in a cheerful environment with my partner, with my morning workout completed and nowhere else I need to be.
Several of my blogging friends are having problems downloading pictures. This morning I couldn't post comments. I use Chrome as my browser of choice for blogspot, since they are both Google products and only have the occasional difficulty. I have Safari, Firefox and Chrome browsers installed on my laptop and when one doesn't work, I'll pull up another and it will sometimes fix the problem. There is also the old standby of doing a reboot. Blogger is currently having more hiccups than usual, though.
