Winter Rain

The arctic cold has departed for now.
The temperature climbed into the 40s today;
tomorrow it is to be in the 70s.
And that means winter rain.

I don't mind rain,
and in the winter, I find it more appealing than snow and ice.
I found this quote by the 19th-century art critic John Ruskin:
that puts it all in perspective:

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing,
wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating;
there really is no such thing as bad weather,
only different kinds of good weather.
