Just another Day in Paradise!


Well I woke up this morning and knew it rained all night and we had 80% chance of rain today. I was ok with that as we have not had rain in a while and really needed it. I got my umbrella and was ready to tackle the day. I saw it as a fun day of skipping in the rain.

Well I get out there in my small little sports car and the roads are flooded. I am starting to wonder if I am going to make it to my destination. Big trucks passing by and throwing rain at me and blinding my way as I slowly move along wondering if I am going to stall. I keep thinking should I turn around, but decide to keep going as I only have about 2 miles to go. I get to the gate, it is storming, roll down the window, punch the code in, roll up the window and nothing. I assume it didn’t like how fast I punched those numbers in, so here we go again. Yeah, this time the gate opens. I park and try to get out the driver’s door, oh great, the door won’t open. Apparently the handle broke. So I crawl over the stick shift to the other side, grab my big umbrella, books, phone, and am ready to tackle the torrential rain and wind. I open the door and attempt to open my umbrella. The wind and rain are fighting with me, therefore I decide to step out and try again. BIG MISTAKE! I am drenched in 2 seconds as the books go flying one way and my phone the other and I am stuck between two cars desperately trying to hang onto the umbrella.

I am sure I looked worse than this but here are some pictures I found on the internet so you could have an idea what it was like.

Well by the time I made it to the door my umbrella was broken and I looked like a drowned rat. I then proceeded to try to open the door with the key I was given. Guess what? You guessed right, it is not working. After fighting with it for about 5 minutes and finding out I have to jiggle it just right I got the door open.

After about 4 hours of work, I went out, got soaked again trying to get to the car and headed home.

When I got home, needless to say I threw that umbrella away. All I  wanted is for Calgon to take me away.  So I took a long hot shower and got into some dry clothes. I looked out my window and see the rains have quit and things are clearing up. Just another day in paradise!
