Green Means “Go” (281/365)

Bad weather always looks worse through a window.


TIME:  6:04 PM
PLACE:  West Main & 17th Street
SUBJECT:  Traffic lights

The kids are off school tomorrow for a teachers institute day and Monday for Columbus Day.  Because of that, I kept thinking that today was Friday and have been feeling discombobulated all day long.  Today was dark and dreary with a cold rain.  Football and cheerleading was canceled tonight and I must admit to be feeling rather relieved that it was.  One less place for us to be.  We ended up making a quick run to the video store for a movie and game stock-up for the long weekend.  I took this picture on our way back home.  As I was taking this quick shot, I got the horn from the impatient driver behind me – what’s the matter, couldn’t they see I was practicing my art?  The nerve of some people, geez.

What a neat shot! And it does look crummy outside!

Football was canceled because of rain?? You clearly play a different brand of football down south than we do up north!

And such a cool shot, well worth the aggravation of the folks behind you. :) We had rain and gray all day on Thursday too -- 2.5 inches of rain, to be exact!

Mari - And it was a cold rain, definately fall weather!

Monica - Well, they have practiced in rainy conditions before but today along with the rain,there was some thunder and lighting as well. Or maybe down south here we're just sissies *wink*

bentonflocke - The lights were the only bright spot today!

Oz Girl - That sounds like a lot of rain and mud!
