it's raining!

I wish I could photograph the sound of the rain on my roof right now.
This might be the best I can do.

That picture itself makes me want to grab my favorite pillow and head outside to curl up for a nap under a tree.

How many times a year does it rain in your county?
PS: At the moment it rains here!
MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED DAYS A YEAR, IT RAINS HERE.

jean beaumont: my country is about 16 times larger than your country, you really can't compare the average rainfall this way. In my city the average rainfall is 30 days per year. We get about 33cm. For me, rain in LA is special. It breaks up the monotony of the sun and blue skies, makes it a little more interesting. The only downside is that angelenos don't know how to drive in the rain. But I'm rarely in a car these days, so I don't mind.

choosy: Perhaps you'd want to do so where you are, but if you curled up under a tree outside in my city, you'd be vulnerable to the lightning (of which there was plenty yesterday). But I'm making a bunch of assumptions here, mainly that you do not want to be struck by lightning. I hear it's not all that. I know of a fellow who was struck by lightning. He described it as a calm sort of thing. Not that I'd advise anyone to test that out.

That's a good guess as I prefer to remain lightning free. Heck even too much static electricity is a bother.
And it does happen around these parts often enough. Along with random tornadoes, belligerent cattle and roving bands of disgruntled squirrels.
But that last one is true for about anywhere. I just read squirrel gang activity is up forty-three percent from last year alone.

I didn't say CountRy, but CounTY and your CounTY isn't larger than France!
Madame Jean, it's a pity to don't know how to drive in the rain, Angelenous sont des ignorants sans culture!
Heureusement, bientôt vous aurez Barack comme Président et je vous en félicite! Les choses changeront.
Gros bisous.

That is the sweetest "comfy" picture ever.
