Dear rain, Please consider this polite request to take yourself off somewhere else. We have had more than enough now – the deserts are flowing with water, sand bags have been installed in front of some properties and the reservoirs have been topped up nicely.
Dear Walmart, Why do you sell wellington boots for children and men but not for women? Are we just expected to get our feet wet?
Dear Californians, It’s not unknown for it to rain here (though not normally in this quantity and for such a prolonged period) so why would so many of you not own a waterproof jacket? A flimsy umbrella in the face of torrential rain and strong winds doesn’t really afford much protection!
Dear UPS delivery service, I had assumed that you would not have had access to our locked mailboxes. If I had known that you do, I would not have spent quite so long, with a torch, in the pouring rain on Wednesday night, searching all around our property for the package which we had been notified had been delivered succesfully. Next time I will know to look in the mailbox in the first instance.
Dear local lagoon, It wasn’t all about the rain during the past week. There were one or two blinks of sunshine so late one afternoon we arrived on your shores for a walk and enjoyed a nice sunset just as we were on the return leg.
Have a good Friday – I hope your weather is better than it was last week!
