Yes, indeedy, we got more rain. It’s been raining quite a bit, and some of the mattresses in the tents are getting a bit damp. But it seems rather ungrateful to complain. Katrina was a blessing to us despite being such a nightmare to so many. I am wondering how long it will take this rain to percolate down to the water table. How long until I no longer have to wait for the dishes to be done before starting a load of laundry?
In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
