Why I Moved to the Country: Reason #98

 Driving home during a torrential downpour
 is much less stressful while traversing the back country roads instead of commuting on the highway.

 ~Stay dry friends!~

I hope you were stopped when you took this photo, Andrea! LOL -- I'm glad you got some rain. Has it been hot and dry/or humid where you live lately like it has been here? We get thunderclouds coming thru in the late afternoons after all of the heat/humidity build-up, but we don't always get rain. I think you'll enjoy Prodigal Summer a lot. I've never actually read the book, but since about 2007, I've listened to it on CD 2 or 3 times each year since then, I love it that much. I love the way it follows the 3 women's lives, how they slowly become interconnected at the end of the novel. It's touching, and has a good bit of humor. Let me know how you like it. Thanks for the email earlier this evening. Take care, from KY.

Hello Andrea! Oh boy it's really coming down on you isn't it. I know what you living out in the country we don't have to worry about other cars...just the odd telephone pole or culvert and maybe a tractor. I hope you needed the rain. Thanks for the ((hugs)) about the barn this morning...I needed them. That book that your friend Kathy just mentioned sounds really good...I'm going to have to look this up. I hope you have a wonderful day! Maura :)

Wow, quite the downpour! We had the black and greenish clouds, high winds, but only caught a few drops. Glad we got back from camping in time though.

Very true! Except one of friends hit a cow during a down pour once. So watch for cows! ;)

Andrea, I agree! And that's some (as we sometimes say here) gullywasher you have there! -Tammy

Oh my gosh. Is that not the truth?!

Oh, how we need that rain! Please send some our way!

I hate driving in traffic! Driving in the country is much better. I have learned every cure, odd twist, bumps in the road, where to pull over to let another car pass etc. And then I get behind someone who doesn't know any of this.
Then I see they have out-of-state license plates, and I go grrrrr!

But, then I am gratefull to the tourist $$$ they spend here to help our mountain parks stay beautiful!

And I go grrrrr, a little less!! :)

xo, misha
