Tangobaby and the Damned Crazy Blustery Day

We are having the craziest rainstorm here today!
The wind is blowing so hard that it's shaking the giant windows in our 9th floor office. Some of us aren't real keen on that. (My boss says we'll be okay but he's glad we're not on a higher floor.)

I couldn't even use my umbrella today to walk down the street because I almost ended up like Mary Poppins--the wind turned my umbrella into a paraglider.

I know for those of you who live in places where there's actually real weather (snow, hurricanes, etc.) you're probably laughing, but for us babies in California, this is very exciting.

UPDATE: Okay, maybe we're not such babies. On the news it says the winds are clocked at 70 m.p.h.!

You have described every day in Seattle for months. I kid you not.
Dreaming of sunshine.

Wow, Elizabeth, that is no fun. The rain is one thing, but it's the gusts of wind that's freaking us out. I hope you get some sunshine soon, since we seem to have your rain and wind!
