“When surrounded by lemons, make lemonade” my Dale Carnegie instructor used to remind us every week.
As the hockey game ended and the rain paused for a bit, Marilyn and I grabbed the opportunity and headed out for a rulk. As we run through the park doing our best to dodge the many deep puddles, I’m thinking that there are some great pictures of water out here somewhere and today would be the perfect day to get out and find them.
We are running the last 100 yards to home, the sky begins to drip yet again, so now the many deep puddles have raindrops breaking their surface.
I trade my running shoes for more waterproof shoes, grab my camera and head back out the door.
The park appeared deserted earlier, but now with the game over, breakfast out-of-the-way, and light rain for a while, the streets are busy. It seems every man, women and dog in the park are out for a walk.
By late afternoon, when the thunder finally stopped and the storm had moved on, we had received over two and a half inches of rain in a little over 12 hours.
On a drier note
A few days ago we walked out on the Gulf Shores State Park fishing pier, at 1540 feet, the longest fishing pier on the gulf coast, in time to catch the sunset.
Turns out, in my eyes at least, the nasty cloud formation has upstaged the sunset. Is it a pre-historic bird? Is it a dragon? What do you see?
