RAIN

Bad weather always looks worse through a window.  ~Author Unknown

Living in the Pacific Northwest, we’re never short of it.  It was one of the things that kept me from moving here.  But now, it is one of the reasons I love it here.  Rain may resemble gloom to some, but when those little silver drops come down from the sky…

trees grow…

flowers bloom…

a plant’s thirst is quenched.

Let’s not forget a rainy weekend gives us an excuse to sit by the fire and be lazy, read a book, spend some true quality family time.  There’s an upside to everything.

The perfect complement to a rainy day is my bacon clam chowder with cheddar garlic biscuits.  http://somethingville.com/2011/01/12/bacon-clam-chowder/.

  4. SOOO beautiful! Remind me again where in the PNW you are? We lived on Whidbey Island (WA) and miss it so… even with the rain. I think living there actually made me appreciate the rain.
