They hoped the rain would stop soon


“Sometimes in life, we need a few bad days in order to keep the good ones in perspective.” ― Colleen Hoover, Maybe Someday

No matter how well you plan your day you must realize and accept the fact that the weather in the summer is highly unpredictable and that storm clouds can loom on the horizon and dampen your parade at any time. Picnics, yard work and even meticulously planned sidewalk construction fall under the weather’s capricious conditions.

This sidewalk construction crew began their shift at seven a.m. The weatherman had promised sunny skies with the slightest chance of showers. A few folks even began trimming their lawns and tending to other outdoor chores.

Around two p.m. the weather picture changed drastically. The storm clouds rolled in, thunder roared and lightning flashed. The monsoon driven rain drops pelted the area in a series of sorties meant to dampen anyone’s optimistic spirits.

The crew hauled out protective plastic sheets to not only preserve the integrity of their work but at times to protect themselves from the driving rain and occasional hail pellets. 

Although the weather was less than favorable for such outdoor work the crew did not despair and kept up their good humor and energetic efforts to complete the job.
