Rain rain go away!

DON'T come again another day lol. It's a rainy dreary day here today. We are currently in between storms right now too. We had a doozy of a storm about an hour ago. I'm hoping that the next round of storms won't be to severe but the radar looks nasty :(

Here's the view outside my house right now


This is from my front porch looking sorta back towards my garage.




This is from my front porch looking towards the street. My poor tree is so waterlogged right now lol.


Makes me think of this poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The Rainy Day

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the moldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the moldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
