- Weather's Effect on My Days
Weather can make my day really worth living. I love rainy days. I enjoy driving in the rain, and when I was still riding horses, I loved riding in the rain, too. There is something really wonderful about taking a long walk in the rain, too.
Once about two years ago, my older sister and I actually took a walk in the rain that ended up being about six miles long. We started out walking with our umbrellas to a favorite convenience store where they have a really good snack bar. The lady who prepares all of the food to order, really makes wonderful things such as breakfast burritos, with one to three meats, with scrambled eggs, and cheese. You can have her add potatoes, onions, or practically whatever you like. I prefer only bacon, eggs, and cheese. There are times when I have her add fresh dices onions, but for flavor, I think I like just the several pieces of bacon, with about three or maybe four eggs and melted cheese. it takes two hands to hold this burrito, and usually I eat half and take the rest home for another meal for breakfast the following morning, or maybe for dinner.
I used to ride my horse in all kinds of weather, hot, warm, sunny, or pouring rain. My younger sister and I even occasionally would stop at a local store and buy a small box of those large yard/leaf trash bags, and after poking a hole in one corner, we would stick our head out, and make arm holes, tie at the waist, and plop our hat on, and head out for the day.
Once, we were riding through a field, heading to one of our favorite areas in the hills, when some people driving along the nearby road, opened their window, stuck out their head, and yelled, "Hey Look, It's the Fruit if the Loom Guys." That just added to our day. Mind you that was only about twenty some years ago, so we were hardly kids when we did that sort of thing.
Only if it was extremely hot, more than 108 degrees, would we not take out the horses, as they could overheat in that weather. As in the rain, only if it were dangerous, would he head home, or just not go riding those days. But, in general, weather only adds to the experience, and the horses seemed to know it, too.
