January Rain

Heavy rains in January. Why isn't this snow? Is it because of global warming? Because the last two weeks had lower than normal temperatures every day. And why do we find rain so dreary, dismal, and depressing? It makes me wonder. Humans are something like 90+% water. Our planet is referred to as the watery planet. We love to go to the beach, the lake, the pool. Yet, our general attitude toward rain is quite negative. Perhaps, as water becomes scarcer in the coming decades, we will hear phrases like, "It's a beautiful rainy day." and "You are my raindrop." Makes me think.

  1. Those options have certainly changed, haven't they?! My second grade students barely know what a (vinyl) record is!
