Warm rain

I awoke this morning from a night of troubled dreams, to find myself transformed in my bed into a giant sleepyhead.

Fortunately, the sound of rain soon washed away the cobwebs. I headed out to warm up the car (by force of habit) and it felt warm out. It was raining steadily and even the rain felt warm. Maybe that’s just the way things feel after spending a few days at below zero temperatures, but I liked it. It’s still raining out, but the temperature is now up to 52 degrees, which is unseasonably warm for this time of year in the Metro D.C. area.

I’m in the middle of a tough problem, trying to re-map some database records on certain record changes, and I’m finding that it’s a little trickier than I thought. It’s nice to be able to look out my office window and see the rain coming down on the mall skylights and the warm, dark clouds hovering overhead.
