Rain...



...last night made a lot of noise as it hit the sheet metal surrounding my two fireplaces, hot water tank and furnace.  It is a comforting sound late at night or early in the morning.  When you live alone the sounds of the weather reassure me that all is well with the world.  The snow is falling for our resort industry and the rain is falling to replenish the reservoir for the farmers.  Another part of the cycle of life in the high country at 9600 feet.  I am constantly reminded that many people live in this place because of the weather.  It is never boring and it is constantly changing.  The very most common subject of conversation is always the weather even when there is no weather to talk about.  Let's talk about how it has not snowed.  Then again we can talk about how it has not rained.  Talking about something that has not happened.  Aren't people funny?
