Keeping dry when rain falls from the skyMay 01, 2012
It’s been raining a ton lately where I live. It rained so much last week that it created a little river in my backyard! It’s dried up now but that was a crazy amount of rain.
So last week, before all this rain started, I dressed in sandals, jeans and a t-shirt to go to school. It was supposed to be a nice day, but then at lunch time it started; the rain, the lightning, the thunder. It went on for three hours and then, when school was out I had to walk home. And let me just tell you how annoying it is to walk almost a mile in wet sandals, wet jeans and wet feet that feel soaked to the bone. It was so NOT fun, especially because when jeans get wet they get really, really heavy. I had to pick up my feet like I was marching so I wouldn’t be wet all the way up to my waist!
So anyway, my point is, keep those boots and raincoat handy, people. Even if you have to bring them to school in your backpack (make sure your name is on them so if you lose them someone can return them). It’s worth it not to have to walk home completely soaked.
It is spring after all. And April showers bring May flowers!
Stay dry, friends!
