Longfellow Said It Best


"Into each life some rain must fall, some days must be dark and dreary." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is my favorite poet. Surely this man must have spent time in Louisiana to have written this line. Rain is always falling here. It has been our scourge while trying to build. Rain has delayed the delivery of the dirt for two months. It has delayed the compaction study of the dirt pad. It is now delaying the forming and pouring of the slab. What else is new? Watch. Once we finally have the roof on, there will be a drought.
The forecast? Rain today, rain tomorrow, rain Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. But in Louisiana, it's not just rain. It's thunderstorms, torrential downpours, "gully-washers."
Rain, rain, go away. Come again some other day. Like November 30th. :^D
