still raining

It has now been raining for three days, not heavily but lightly and steadily.  Jack said 2 1/2 inches.  We can always "use" rain but it puts a "damper" on social activities such as walking anywhere.  But the zillion shades of green are truly dazzling.  Despite the rain we drove up to Colima yesterday to visit the BIG supermarket to get things like heavy cream, good butter and good olive oil.  In and out in less than an hour, although the round trip takes about 3 hours door to door.  And yes, it did rain on the way.  So we are not the only ones who are getting soaked.  We went down to Fernando's for comida and sat well back from the edge of the overhang.  Amazingly, there were quite a few people on the beach and in the water. 

We went to the tianguis this morning, mainly to buy the ingredients for Chuy's chiles rellenos for dinner on Wednesday night.  Also picked up some beautiful strawberries for ice cream!

Looking at last year's blog posts, it rained at this same time.  I guess this has become an annual thing.

It's hard to feel sorry for you for a few rainy days, Bunz! Consider this: B'more got about 5 or so inches of snow last night, and points NE got a couple of feet!!! (Prediction here was for "a dusting to 2-3 inches". And, record cold for us: 10 this morning, and 20 this afternoon. More to follow tomorrow, I'm afraid.

I am very lucky with neighbors. Nice young man next door shovels all 18' of my sidewalk out front, and I usually can sweep the stairs from the top step. However, underneath the snow everywhere, a thick layer of ice. I'm not taking my new hip ANYWHERE until the ice is gone!!!

SOOOO looking forward to Palm Springs! Just 15 days left until I leave!!!
