What a Michigan day ….. a nice warm sunlit morning and early afternoon (I wiggled my toes in amazement in the doorway, almost astonished to see sunlight bathing the threshold) followed in quick succession by an evening howling with wind and a mild rainstorm. Still, I walked to Kroger in it. I’m a freak, I know. There’s something about the rain I like here too, though. I can’t put my finger on it. Rain in San Francisco is a wet, cold, bitter, miserable experience, usually because when it happens it lasts for days on end and soaks you through to your bones. I haven’t experienced that sensation with the rain here yet, not to conclude that it never happens. The rain so far has been kind of soothing.
