Sabbath August 7, 2011

[“Sabbath” is this blog’s Sunday feature that explores life and work and other stuff.]

Rain, Rain. . .

It rained this morning, and now it’s raining during the afternoon.  It feels like we’ve had rain all spring and summer. Chicago has become Seattle– gray and wet.  However, I shouldn’t complain.  I was able to play tennis this morning and run several errands between the showers and storms.  We had a little sun.

I think rain depresses people, the darkness, getting wet.  My clients will show up for appointments on the hottest and coldest days.  When do they cancel?  When it’s raining or threatening to rain.  This year the rain has been heavier than usual.  Lighting strikes have caused more house fires.  Still, I will not call this climate change, which is just a theory, just as gravity is just a theory.

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not a fan of drought or living in deserts.  Four seasons bring variety, which is one of the many reasons I love living in Chicago– except on days like this one.  It should not be dark at 5 o’clock in August!

Enough complaining – Next week’s Sabbath will be happier (unless it’s raining).
