Rain Rain Go Away

Actually, it has.  But it was torrential yesterday.  Buckets 'o rain, and a gale-force wind that drove the rain horizontally.

So of course, a friend and I had to go out anyway.  We'd planned a "field trip" last week, and no stinkin' rain was going to keep us down!  We were headed about an hour away, for shopping and gossip and a lovely lunch.

Well.... after more than an hour sitting in traffic with little progress, we scaled back our ambitions.  We hit a much closer shopping area.  We still managed to have to run through the rain and got completely soaked just running out to the car.  But we found a lovely lunch anyway.  And spent a day catching up and swapping gossip and giving each other advice, you know, all the good things that you need from a female friend.

And you know?  By the time we got home, the rain had stopped.  Who'd a thunk it?
