Blessed Rain


So I thought this was funny enough to post. Also maybe a little intuitive glace into the mind of Emily and how she at least (if not all of us) will be thinking if we do make it to California. Yesterday it was 93 degrees and today was more of the same. After two days of sunshine and getting to play in the pool, sprinkler and water slide with all of her friends this was Emily's response to the weather forecast. We were looking at the Google forecast on our home page and Emily says, "Sun, sun and more sun. Look Tuesday...BLESSED RAIN!!!!!!!"
Oh clouds and rain...how we will miss you.
I'm reminded of our first day back in California after we had moved into Grandma's house while Dad was in Egypt. We had walked to the neighborhood school to enroll the kids and on our way back home Emily was struggling to put one foot in front of the other. Her response to the over-hyped California sunshine then was, "It's so hot my eyeballs are melting!"
You can always count on Emily to tell it like it is:-)
PS. I can not take credit for the picture:-)

So funny. Going from rainy to 92 degrees can definitely be a shock. Enjoy that weather while it lasts!

Love Emily. The apple didn't fall far from the tree. I love that. I agree with you. I love a nice hot weekend every now and then, but a nice 78 -82 degree world would be perfect for me.

Better weather in San Diego than in Tucson. At least you can tell Emily that :)

Not nearly as hot as the Sanai though huh Dave?!! I rediscovered your blog. Glad to see the Wilcox's are doing well. I will never forget our long lunches and fun chats in a land far far away.
Take care,
