Upside down rainy day

Rainy day after rainy day this week.
Winter solstice, dark evenings.
It doesn't feel like Christmas
Or Chanukah.
Everything seems upside-down.

Water everywhere, little lakes beside the sidewalks,
giant shower sprays as cars drive by.
Nothing for it but to plunge out into the wetness.
We'll dry off later in front of the fireplace.

Meanwhile, have you noticed recently how difficult it is to find a good looking pair of rubber boots???

hi sigrid. great pictures. i like your sketches too.

about those boots.....your wet feet may not have chosen style, and your dry feet may not care about style.

she's an artist, she don't look back.

We've been having rain in the northwest. Snow makes it feel more like the holidays, but still, it's all beautiful.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas celebration.
