Somewhere over the rainbow...

Once upon a time in a land far far away... Ya, that was a bad way to lead in. Lol

So the other day it actually rained in arizona. Not the little sprinkles or the light drizzle we see from time to time...but REAL rain. Honest to Gawd the sky opened up and buckets of water poured out. Now anywhere else this wouldn't be a big deal. People would grab their umbrellas and raincoats and turn on the windshield wipers and go on with their business. But here, this much rain is interpreted as a sign of the apocolypse and people F-ing panic.

People suddenly forget how to drive and they forget all common sense and courtesy. When on the road its like watching an episode of when idiots attack. When attempting to move from a parking lot to say, a store...its everyman for himself. You will see little old ladies and soccer moms bolting for the door, purses protecting hair, throwing elbows to get inside faster. Its insanity, it really is.

The rain already makes you feel gloomy, and then when added to the insanity all that comes is pure rage. Lol. And then, after a day of dealing with all of that, after you have lost your faith in humanity? You see the rainbow, and you remember that its days like this, that something so neat and so beautiful happens.
Makes you stop and appreciate that even a rainy gloomy ragey day can end with a rainbow.
