Something in the Rain

 
OK, we weren't singing, but Loren showed up and we hiked four miles at Nordhouse in the rain.

When we started it was raining hard and steadily.

By the time we finished, it was POURING. Like how they show it pouring in the movies where the water is coming down so hard you know it's fake pouring.

We sat in her car and ate our lunches. Another successful hike! (At least it will be memorable.)

It looks like you were enjoying yourselves. For my part, I was content to sit by my window and sip on a steaming cup of hot brew.

oh, my. Such dedication. You did say you'd hike whether any showed or not; glad you had company.

I see the prediction about the rain was correct!

oh, i miss hiking in pouring rain, i love rain, and as long as there are no thunderstorms, i won't mind a hike in the rain.

Well, it looks as though you were well-prepared for the rain. And if it was warm, you might as well hike, right?

Chuck- I have plenty of those days too.

vanilla- it's far enough that if I went to the trouble to get the gear on and go there, I'd walk

dennis- indeed!

betchai- I used to just go walk in the rain on purpose, but after enough backpacking in the rain some of the appeal has worn off

Lin- I looked good. The result wasn't so great- I think that suit (it was Om's) is worn out.
