For the next 15 days, we are going to get nothing but rain rain, rain. Apparently all up and down the eastern seaboard, so there is no escape for us. Oh, there will be little bits of sunshine here and there but mostly, rain, rain, rain and more rain.
This has put a huge dent on our summer plans. We can’t even go to the community pool because they won’t allow swimming in the rain. Bummer! We’ve been running our air conditioner on and off in order to keep the internal humidity at bay but it’s still been rather sticky here.
We were supposed to spend a week RVing at the Jersey shore next week but I cancelled those plans! Rain and camping just don’t mix. I thought about going to the movies a lot but other than the new Tom Cruise Mission Impossible movie, there really isn’t much that interests me enough to spend any money. So, instead I signed up for a free month of Netflix and DH and I are binging on movies and specials we haven’t seen yet (such as Anne with an A and Mamma Mia!)
One of the other things we can do while we mire in the rain is eat. DH managed to grill some steaks when the sun did manage to come out for a spell. We also have been going to our local diner that serves up Senior Citizen meals between 4:30 and 6PM. You can get a whole dinner, from soup to nuts, including coffee/tea and a dessert for under ten dollars! So, DH and I have been stopping by the diner a lot! Who wants to cook in this misery?
Other than what I have posted above, life in the rain has been pretty boring. My sister and BIL did drive up from Florida this past weekend (his mother is having a big 80th birthday party) so we got to spend some happy time with them. We all also went friend hoping and visited a couple we know in the next town over. The hubby had just had a knee replacement so it was good to get together and share a few laughs. Inside.
There is nothing anyone can do about the rain. It is what it is. We have no control over the weather. Best to just make the best of it and get used to the humidity. We were thinking of just getting in the car and driving somewhere else BUT it’s raining, as I said, up and down the eastern seaboard, so I think we’ll just stay at home.
And binge on Netflix.
For free. Till August 15th. Hopefully, the sun will return by then. 😦
