I’m ready for rain

October 1, 2008

It’s official: I’m now ready for it to rain here.  I lost track awhile back, but it’s been roughly since April or May that it last rained in Silicon Valley.  Yes, the Mediterranean climate here is lovely, and there are advantages to never having to worry about making plans in the summer in case it rains (although it can bite you too: I had to Boston a couple of weeks ago and I completely forgot to pack an umbrella because I’d just started assuming that it won’t rain).  But now I’m tired of the brown and would like some lush green again.

Yes, I know it’s sad to gripe about the never-ending sunny warm weather (sunny and 80s here today). But at this point I’m happy that the weather forecasters are saying there’s a chance of showers on Saturday. I’ve been humming The Cure’s “Prayers for Rain” on and off in my head for the last week or two. So let it rain!
