The Rainy Day.

“The day is cold, and dark, and dreary

It rains, and the wind is never weary;

The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,

But at every gust the dead leaves fall,

And the day is dark and dreary.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

So, today is an icky day with more snow in the south and rain up where we live.  But it’s gross.  And tiresome.  And like all New-Englanders I am hitting that point where I just want to complain about the weather all. the. time.

But yesterday I needed to be at work super super early and was reminded that there is an end to all of this “weather” coming.


It was a beautiful sunrise and although cold, a gorgeous sunny day.  Soon, folks… soon.  Spring will be here before we know it!  To heck with Punxsutawney Phil and his prediction!  I’m choosing to look forward to spring!  And maybe hit a tanning bed tonight.  🙂

“Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;

Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;

Thy fate is the common fate of all,

Into each life some rain must fall,

Some days must be dark and dreary.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  1. Ah – love that! And while I, too, have had my fill of snow boots, snow blowers, and snow shovels – we’re halfway through February (wchih means one month until an island vacation) and the Spring will soon be upon us. Shine down dear sunshine – shine down! And if you can’t do that, at least let us see you for a bit every once in awhile!
