Rain, Rain Go Away

It has now rained for 3 days straight and when I say "rained", it's not a sprinkle rain. No no, it's a monsoon rain. Not good, for multiple reasons.
The 1st reason: I'm looking into buying a new car. It's very uncomfortable to hike around on the car dealerships lots' in the pouring rain. For those of you who will want to know...I'm looking at the Kia Rio...yes I know not the coolest car but they have that amazing 10 years or 100,000 miles warranty. 
          
The 2nd reason: This area has a tendency to flood. I don't want to see anymore people lose their possessions or homes. So far, this rain storm hasn't caused any but we'll see how it goes.

The 3rd reason: Whatever happened to April showers bring May flowers?!?! All it did in April was rain. The few flowers that came out are now water logged. Way to go rain!

The 4th reason: All last week it was gorgeous outside and where was I? Inside! It's called work people. The first day I had off for my 3 day weekend...rain. The second day...rain. Now the third...rain. BOOOO

So enclosing, Dear rain, go away!

It's actually been proven that it rains more often on the weekends than weekdays. Something to do with the reaction of pollution from the weekly commute. Random trivia, I know. Good luck with your car hunt.

Yeah, it's raining here too. Blah! I think the Kia Rios are really cute cars! And the warranty is amazing. Hyundai also has really great warranties...well, they used too. I don't know if they still do, but they did when I bought my Accent. Good luck! I hope you get what you want!

Totally agree with you on the rain around here! I'm ready for it to be the warm, clear days of spring!

I think the May "flowers" have been replaced with May floods. Time to break out the ole rubber rain boots.

I love the title for your blog. Really cool.

Ashley said...

Karie said...

I am FEELING your pain! It's depressing me and my yard is like flooded out. We have terrible wind and scattered tornados constantly too. AND I'm here alone! The thunder and lightening at night is getting very old!

I heard that it has rained almost every day in Atlanta since we moved to Germany almost 6 weeks ago! Good luck with the car search. We are going to be buying another car too but not until we sell our condo back in Atlanta! I'm glad you found my blog! Now I have a new one to read too!

It seems like it's doing nothing but raining across the entire country! I hate it!

Hey and no worries about the Kia...in this economy you have to go for what's practical rather than what's "cool". And anyhow, that's a cute, little car to zip around town in!

Army Duck said...

Ohh I hope it stops soon for you!

Oh its been raining here and my backyard is flooded so I feel your pain.

Not to mention, my dogs are not prissy at all and actually LOVE the rain and will play out in it all night if they could.

My friend just got a new car and we definitely were doing car-stuff in the rain. Woof.

I know it POURED last night here. I wound up being woken up several times because it was so loud.
