Working on my rain game

It’s supposed to rain a lot in the next 3 to 4 days. 

It started raining at 8 am and I’ve been hiking in the rain for 6 hours

It’s been quite dry in Maine this summer so the rain is welcome.

I use this app called Dark Skies which has been very helpful in areas where I have a cell signal. The Appalachian  Trail Conservancy also supports a site that gives weather forecasts for each AT shelter.

As I was hiding from the pouring rain under a large balsam fir, a woman hiked by – she looked remarkably familiar

I told her that she bore a striking resemblance to one of my children’s teachers in Chinle. Turns out it was her sister. Mary Reeser – sister of Susan Reeser-Yazzie. Uncanny family resemblance. Mary lives in Maine and I may see her again when I get to Monson.

A few more:

Flagstaff Lake – I knew Flagstaff deserved a lake!

A lobster?

Trying to love the rain,

    What were the odds of Mary Reeser being there and of you recognizing her facial familiarity??? DESTINY!!!

      I agree, Sally. The number of synchronicities are also noteworthy.

    Marty and I have been through that area snowshoeing. Enjoy the rain. It is so humid here might as well be raining.

      Looks like I’ll be enjoying the rain for a few days here. These are steep mountains (the Bigelows) so I keep reminding myself how cool this rain is keeping me.
