There is a 90% chance of rain today. I wish I had this woman's elegance as I ride along on my bicycle. Once I was riding home from work in the days when I sometimes rode to and from work on my bicycle. There was a surprise rain storm, and there I was, with the rear wheel spewing rain on my back. I wouldn't have minded it so much if I was on a less travelled road, but it was a fairly busy one, and the cars were abit mindless about splashing me. Oh well, I live to tell this story. Luckily, there were soft terry towels at home to soothe my body and soul.
Another time we were living in an August heat wave. I stood outside while it was pouring, and let the rain pour down on me. It was soul refreshing and I was elated beyond what I thought I would be. That was when I didn't want or need an umbrella. Ever have a similar experience?
