Who’ll Stop The Rain?

Last night, just as I was about to fall asleep, I admitted a deep dark secret to my husband.

I hate the sound of rain.


I don’t find it calming, or peaceful. It doesn’t make me want to cozy up next to the fire or make soup from scratch. It makes me crazy.

When I was a kid I had horses and I used to feel so bad for them, outside. I also used to hate walking out to feed them in the rain. Or walking to the school bus stop in the rain. A few years ago our roof leaked and despite the new decking and shingles, I still don’t trust the thing. Oregon rain is very…insidious.

Yes, I find rain insidious.

I live in the wrong state.

    Oh, sweetie, you certainly do live in the wrong state. As a native Oregonian (now transplanted to Washington) I feel your pain.
