Raining again. REALLY raining. And now I see it’s mixed with snow. I was watching the rain come down and thought I saw really big drops, or possibly flower petals being knocked off the blooming cherry trees. But then I realized there weren’t any blooming trees of any kind near where I was looking. Nope, great big fat snowflakes. Lovely. I took today and the next two days off from work while my boss is out of town with his family for spring break. Too bad the weather is so terrible but then it’s only March in Oregon. It won’t really get dry and warm here until sometime around the 4th of July. I remember taking the boys for swimming lessons right after school let out in mid-June when they were younger. They’d be in the pool with raining coming down. My boss was headed out to the coast for a few days with his family, not going to be much fun out there in the pouring rain but then they’re natives (except his wife) so the kids probably won’t care.
