Walking/Singing/Knitting in the Rain

What a crazy weather day it has been in Lansing! I went for a walk at 1pm, and it was so sunny I chose the shady side of the street. By the time I got home at 1:35, it was misting. By 1:40 we had buckets of rain coming down. Since then we’ve had sun, then more downpours, then sun again.

I had planned to ride my bike to dance rehearsal tonight. I think I’m officially not bold enough to chance getting that wet. I’m a fair-weather bicyclist, though I do enjoy a walk in snow and rain.

I took a 26-second video of one of our downpours this afternoon. The Flickr upload made it a bit grainy, but just about at the middle of the video (14 seconds in) a guy down the far end of our side street is bolting across the street to close the windows of his truck. Good thing people are drip dry!

A better video (this has the potential to make anyone smile)… Gene Kelly dancing in the rain, from the movie “Singing in the Rain.”

    How absolutely wonderful, Lynn!  I haven’t seen Gene Kelley dance and sing in the rain for many, many years, and that was just a delight.  Thank you for that gift!

    As for the patterns, I will check those out tomorrow or Saturday.  Spending tomorrow setting up the Spinning Guild’s booth for the Williamston Red Cedar Jubilee, which begins at 3PM Friday and is on Saturday from 10-5.

    Aww, I can’t see him at all.  You live in a very pretty neighbourhood, though.

    Bummer. I found it on YouTube, searching “Singing in the Rain, Gene Kelly.” Maybe you can see it that way.

    Yes, it’s a good neighborhood. A very green city, and a friendly, working-class area which is very well integrated. I like it.

    Thanks for coming by!

    I lived in Williamston for 12 years. Haven’t been to a Jubilee since. No interest in the Beer Tent, but I remember a parade with Debbie Stabenow steering herself on a John Deere tractor (under an umbrella). My fave memory, I think.

    Have fun.
