Rainy Days and Mondays

1979 Per Spook red vinyl raincoat

It has been raining here since Friday. We're having a good old-fashioned New England Nor'easter, and all I can say is thank goodness it's not snow, as we'd be buried under several feet by now. The repairman is up on the roof of our 115-year-old house as I write this fixing a couple of leaks that have cropped up overnight. He's braver than I am, out in the wind and the rain. I don't even think these wonderful raincoats would keep me dry today.
