Well, I never started there. But you get the reference. I am reminded of how far away I am from my Utah home by the copious (my word of the day) amount of rain that is falling. Bucket and buckets. Raining and raining and raining.
It's not the huge downpour that I experienced time after time in PA last summer. (I'm sure that is coming later in the season.) It's just the fact that when it rains out here, it rains and rains and rains. It's been raining since yesterday! I know I shouldn't be shocked by that. But when you come from a desert state, a rain storm is any amount of precipitation that lasts longer than 10 minutes. But I don't mind. Truly. I packed two Mary Poppins-like umbrellas. So I don't mind venturing outside. It is also quite nice to fall asleep to the sound of clouds weeping against the windows. And if I squint my ears, the sound of rain falling on the rain gutter sounds like wind chimes.

PS - Does anyone know what an Aldi grocery store is all about? It's the strangest market I've ever been in. Please share if you know their business model. I'm confused. Also, not sure if I used "copious" correctly in above sentence. Does it work with singular nouns? Copious amounts of rain? Would that have been correct? Mrs. D, English teacher, help me out on this one.
