On Rain

It’s been pretty rainy here in DFW these last few days. A lot of people gripe and complain about rain, but being that it’s Texas, I don’t. We usually need every drop we can get.

I have always enjoyed rainy days. I don’t always enjoy being out in them, but I do enjoy them. I like being inside when it rains, whether working in the garage on a project, reading a book by the window, or sleeping through a passing thunderstorm. Some people reflect the weather by feeling gloomy when it rains. Me, I get excited.

Strangely enough, I really enjoy driving in the rain. I’d drive every day in the rain if it rained every day. I attribute this to past bad-weather (is weather really bad?) outings with Dad in his 1999 Subaru Outback, an incredible all-weather vehicle. That station wagon made you feel safe regardless of what nature was doing outside. The radio could even tune into the weather band!

I also think back to the movie Le Mans with Steve McQueen, in which most of the racing takes place on a wet track in the rain. I think the rain excites the aspiring auto racer inside me somewhere. It also helps that my car seems to drive its best in rainy weather, strangely enough.

What I don’t like about driving in the rain are the other drivers, though. Then again, I don’t like them the rest of the time, either.
