But have you ever noticed when you don't get many sunny days, how a dreary day after a sunny day is drearier than usual? It was overcast in the early morning, then the clouds just opened up and poured rain for the rest of the day. And it felt drearier than usual.
I remember when I was a kid, I grew up in a small town with old school buildings. We had those old cast iron radiators. I remember having a seat next to the window by one of those radiators and gazing outside on rainy days. It just filled me with angst and made me feel disconnected from my family; maybe because we lived out in the country and everything was so far away; I was an anxious child for some reason.
As an adult I actually love hearing the rain at night when I'm falling asleep knowing my family is safe inside. But I still get that childhood angst when it's pouring down rain and I'm home alone, especially in the winter when it's darker.
So today it's overcast and will probably rain at some point. The sun is supposed to come out later today; in the meantime, I'm home alone watching for rain and thinking I need a nap. Maybe the sun will come out by the time I wake up and I can start this day over.
