I've just been woken up by the rain. It's raining cats and dogs out there - absolutely bucketing down. This is not good as Dan and Bugsy are going to a sponsored ride today, in open fields with lots of rustic type cross country fences to jump over!!! Very dodgy doing this kind of activity when the ground is wet as the risk of slipping (for the horse) are greatly increased.
However, I love it when it rains like this. I don't mind getting really wet through, and when you're watching the rain fall out of the sky , I always feel a kind of awe at nature. It doesn't matter how sophisticated we become as a race, how much technology we have, how important we feel we are......along comes some bad weather, and puts us right back in our place. We run around like lab rats trying to cope with it - and quite frankly we don't stand a chance!!!
Do you think this is Mother Nature trying to put us back in our place? Every now and again she flexes her muscles and lets us all know in no uncertain terms that she is very firmly back in charge!
