In spite of threats from the weather people and, well, the sky itself, the big storm we were promised failed to develop here in DC. There was just enough icy rain to make the north facing sides of the street slippery.
When storms bring just a little rain, it's always a disappointment. It gets so gray and gloomy, you expect a lot of water. But then the sky just spits. It's so annoying. But there are benefits, too, like the cool marblized rainbows on the street, an alchemy of just a sip of muddy water stirred with automobile drippings.
As someone who no longer owns a car, though ... I'm grateful not to have to navigate through accumulated frozen precipitation. God. Am I becoming a southerner?
Happy weekend, ya'all.
