Rain or Shine

May 2003, Dayton, Ohio
A few years ago, there was a study by the state of Connecticut to determine the average rainfall in various locations throughout the state. Turned out that my neighborhood has the highest average rainfall in the state.

My neighborhood is also located on one of the highest points in the county. As a result, spring comes late in my neck of the woods and there are still piles of snow hither and yon.

The last snow disappeared from my yard last week, so at the crack of dawn yesterday, I swapped snow shovels for rakes and began dealing with the mess Mama Nature left for me over the winter.

I tried to do too much and ran out of gas by mid-afternoon. So I relaxed the rest of the day and never touched a keyboard. As a result, I am composing Monday morning's blog post on Monday morning!

Wanda Weather is predicting rain for most of the week, which is kind of disappointing. Thursday, I am doing outreach at Southern Connecticut State University and before outreach, I was planning on stopping at Hubbard Park in Meriden, Connecticut, for a selfie photoshoot among the daffodils. (Hubbard Park is the site of Meriden's annual daffodil festival.) But if it is raining, I'll probably go shopping instead.

And as I mentioned here on Friday, Saturday I will be at the UConn Health Center for Transgender Lives: The Intersection of Health and Law Conference. So this girl has a busy week ahead of her, rain or shine.
