Rain, rain, go away…

Hurricane Irene has made her way to New England. So far we’ve just had rain; I don’t think it has been horribly windy yet. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we don’t lost power. And, I guess I should be hoping and praying that no flooding occurs, since I live in the basement. I can’t even go there.

Here are some quotes about rain:

“Thy fate is the common fate of all; Into each life, some rain must fall.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.” John Updike

“Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.” Roger Miller

“Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.” Author unknown
