I've been traveling ... work. But also for pleasure. It's always a pleasure to be in Utah. I think it's a beautiful state. Anyway, some might think of Salt Lake City as a desert - I used to. But compared to Las Vegas, Salt Lake is feeling downright muggy! I was caught the other day in a real downpour!
(see that the rain is coming down in SHEETS?!)
I pulled off the freeway and into a parking lot to wait it out. Right behind me was a soggy motorcycle rider .. poor guy! 20 minutes later I zipped in to see my client, then back to get on the freeway - but it was closed down. Construction workers were thigh-deep in flooded roads. This is true. It was crazy!
(I took this picture in the parking lot - can you tell that the water level is up to the curb?)
I actually really love the rain, so this was fun for me. I'm reminded of the quote by Longfellow:
"The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain."
That's the thing about rain - literal and figurative:
Sometimes it's best to pull over and wait it out, sometimes you just have to drive through it - determined and focused, and always ... always, it can even be enjoyable when you get out and dance in it.


  1. awe, i have always loved that quote by longfellow! & it's so true, to rain & just life in general. :) have a lovely day!

  2. Oh and do we ever need rain here!! It can be scary driving in a torrential downpour though!
