and the rain rain rain came down down down


What a miserable friggin day.

I do not mind a little rain. I love thunderstorms. Hell, I even like hurricane type weather minus the property damage.

But this grey ... gloomy ... constant ... cold ... pelleting rain completely sucks.

And I can't stand the people who are all "Oh but we need the rain and it nourishes the flowers and the puddles give drinks to the birds and it makes the air smell so clean ..." Stuff it already! We are not under drought restrictions, I have allergies, stagnant water breeds mosquitoes, and if you want clean air buy a damn purifier.

O.K., I'm feeling a bit better now that I got that out of my system.

I really like the above painting. It's titled Spring Rain (1912) by John Sloan. He was a Philadelphia artist who was more famous for his paintings of New York than of Philly. And yes, I do believe that is City Hall in the background.

Oh my god, I fully agree with you! I've always said, whay can't it just rain at night when I can sit back and enjoy it? And if I'm out, who cares? I'm probably too fucked up to give shit!

Oh, and the steaple was up on City h
Hall by 1912... if anything, that might be Rittenhouse Park... maybe an early stage of the Barclay Hotel?

Pax - anytime dear. I'll don my gown and we'll dance the night away.

Tesco - thanks for the FYI. I suck at architecture. Had it in art school - got a D.
