The expression goes “when it rains, it pours.” Currently, in Columbus, Ohio, that expression can be amended to “when it snows, it’s your chore, there’s always more and where’s my shovel from Thor.”
Yeah, it’s snowing a lot here in the midwest. And the single-digit temperatures coupled with layers of ice sadly don’t encourage snow fights and building a snowman outside. So, with that in mind, maybe it’s best if we imagine the snow is actually rain for a moment. There’s an inherent tranquility in the rain. For even more imaginative fun, let’s coincide this soothing day-dreaming with today’s Blu-ray release of the visually stunning science-fiction sequel Blade Runner 2049.
“Rain” + Blade Runner 2049 =
Rain in the future (according to Hans Zimmer) sounds nice.
Frank Sinatra would have turned 100 years young this year.
Sinatra was one of the greatest singers the world has ever known. A true one-of-a-kind. Lucky for us, he shared his talent for a Christmas classic.
Even luckier is watching a video edited by Kate Beske, who put Sinatra’s rendition of the Judy Garland song, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” to a beautiful slideshow.
Hopefully, you had yourself a merry little Christmas!
Yesterday, at some point during the afternoon in Columbus, Ohio, there were snow flurries blowing around like its hair was on fire (talk about fire and ice). Snow can be fun and an incredible sight, but not this kind of snow and cold. I had the shades drawn in my office, so it was a genuine shock looking out my co-workers window as I was preparing to leave. “What in the world? I thought Winter was ‘technically’ over?”
Driving home, there was no visibility beyond 15 feet in front of my car. Didn’t Spring kick-off on March 20th? Of course, it is Ohio, so…
Still, the calendar is only days away from flipping into April. This means that instead of relentless snow we shall (surely) now endure relentless rain. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s certainly better than any Polar Vortex!
Occasional rain reminds me of a couple things, which includes singing and splashing around in puddles like a child, as well as…
(Skip to 1:37 for the rain)
Even though it’s usually better to wish for no rain as opposed to rain, it has the potential to bring with it a fun, magical purpose.
It’s like traveling back in time to our childhood when we just went with things as they came about, which can certainly be a good thing every once in a while in between the daily grind.
If nothing else, at least there’s no frost with rain!
