It’s raining, it’s pouring

Apparantly it’s snowing in the Black Forest. Actually, it’s been snowing up there for about 3 weeks, but apparantly now the snow has moved down. Presumably that means it’s not only snow at the top of the mountains now.
So did I ever mention I live near the Black Forest? Not near enough though apparantly – here it’s been raining non-stop for 2 days.  The weather forecast for today is – yup, you’ve guessed it – rain. I’d almost rather have the snow, even if it is only October and therefore (in my eyes) still autumn. Snow should be reserved for winter. But then again, I think rain should be reserved for early spring (to help the new plants grow) and days when I don’t have to go to work. It’s not like the weather gods have ever listened to me though. Not even when I was very young and would say the rhyme:

Rain, rain go away,
Come again another day.

Or alternatively:
Rain, rain go to Spain,
Never, ever come again.
(The idea being that Spain was too sunny for its own good and desperately needed our rain as well as its own)

It’s probably a good job the weather gods never paid any attention. If I’d had my way the UK would be waterless and Spain constantly flooded.
