Weekly Weather: Rain

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Rain (moisture condensed from the atmosphere that falls visibly in separate drops.)

What goes better with rain than umbrellas? (click on the image to bigify!)

What is your earliest memory?

When I was 5 I had my tonsils out – the only thing I remember is the hospital room and her my mom’s dress – it was a black sun dress with big red hibiscus all over it. tonsils

Have you ever danced in the rain?

15 years ago I took my young nephews to a theme park and half way through the day it rained – we had a great time playing in the rain. It’s been too long since I’ve done something so frivolous!!

What is the longest you have gone without sleep?

Maybe 36 hours? When I was young and crazy – now never more than 20 hours
