It’s Raining in San Antonio!


Wow – 18 months of drought in San Antonio TX and hopefully it ends today. Don’t know if this will be a drought buster but we’re expecting to have significant rain for about 4 days.

I don’t know – those meteorologists can be wrong sometimes. I bet they make great poker players.


But this morning around 7am it started to rain at house. Our poor dog Max didn’t know what to make of it so I let him into our screened back porch to stay out of the rain. Plus it’s gonna be a bit colder than usual so he’ll stay dry and a little warmer.

blackipodI was so inspired by the rain and in the spirit of my friends running page (John listed songs for running) I did a quick search for songs with the mention of “rain” in the title.

I began to play them and my cubby mates enjoyed them too.  

Then the rain stopped. So I quickly turned off my iPod hoping I hadn’t jinxed the rain. It’s Spring Break down here but I hope it does pour.

Below are the songs I hope to be listening to tomorrow:
