The sun came out, I thought,

But it’s raining so I’m caught…

In dichotomy

Of weather you see

A conundrum conveniently taught!

I grew up in a place with weird weather,

The second-cloudiest in the country all-together…

It rained with sunshine

Which suited just fine,

As well as a Family called “Webber”.

New York City cousins were awed,

We didn’t think a rainy picnic flawed…

They said that our “steamed”

Hot dogs were a dream,

I’m glad they were charred but thawed!

Nearing the end of rain showers,

Sunshine has remarkable powers…

To renew nice thoughts

About our lots,

Before the next rainstorm glowers.
