Driving over was a nightmare. Californians have no idea how to drive in the rain. Brake lights, 35 on 50 mph streets, rain sheeting softly down, at just the wrong frequency for any windshield wiper settings. Getting out. Forgot an umbrella, pull my hood up around my face, take off glasses (there’s no way I’ll be able to see with those on), walk on the wet cement and soggy leaves across campus. Rain falls at an angle, the wind is steady and the clouds are just varying greys over my head.
What a beautiful, beautiful day.
