The constant rain every afternoon here in our city reminded me of a couple of lines from a Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem:
The day is cold, and dark, and dreary
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
It’s a pain trying to dry clothes during this weather, and I can only imagine the hardship that working people go through during this time of the year, trying to keep their office clothes shoes reasonably dry while battling the rain.
It’s a great time to bring out those cute sweaters and knee-high boots, though, so I know fashionistas take advantage of the season to the fullest. It does help to look chic while the rest of the world looks dreary, don’t you think?
