I felt like I was back in Pittsburgh for just a little while today: it rained for the first time that I’ve been awake to witness it! Not just a little sprinkling, oh no, this was rain and thunder and lightning and the whole shebang! I’m a bit barmy that way, in that my favorite type of weather is cloudy sky and a moderate drizzle. Something about how colors look so much more intense in that light PLUS I have an excuse to show off my umbrella-twirling skills.
Gene Kelly and I share an alma mater, who knows if we’re both paladins of precipitation, too?
Maybe it’s just the little Dutch girl in me talking, but I felt at home–almost enough so to run out and do a rain-dance with tapdancing and puddle-hopping and festive whoops, but unfortunately we were still in class.
Besides, I’m not sure I want to further cultivate the “crazy foreigner” persona. *sigh* A girl can still dream, right?
