The sky is heavy and gray. The streets are shimmering. The green of the trees and the lawns looks even more verdant against the steely backdrop.
I love it.
And I might just love possibly even a tad more that I did one of my longer training runs last night a day early...before the storm moved in.
It seems so apropos for this day after Labor Day, the day most folks consider as the first day of fall, to look the part.
And you wouldn't want to wear white out in this precip party anyway.
So I confess to being somewhat egalitarian in my meteorological tastes. While I crave the bright sunlit beaches of summer, I'm ready for the shaded days of fall. And this downpour seems the perfect launch party.
