This morning I saw the first rain drop since the sky has been completely crystal clear blue for two months or so (clarifying that if I say “clear”, it means that there was not even a piece of cloud up there). My husband and I thought it just one brilliant side of Australian weather or climate until we had a chat with local person who really thinks from the perspective of a real farmer two weeks ago on the wedding. Then we got to know that actually the whole NSW has been suffering from drought and the farmers just leave the things growing on fields as there is no point to do much about it.
I personally used to love rain very much during all my teenager hood time. Beijing is not a place has plenty of falling water and moisture in the air, and my skin unfortunately has fallen into the range of dry type, so I always desperately wanted the rain, fog or even a bit mist. But there were really not many chances that I can enjoy. Upon on this, I have never been able to cultivate a habit to carry an umbrella with me all the time. I just always forgot and left it in the cupboard and ran into the rain with nothing covered. For me it is supposed to be a moment to touch the thing given by the Mother Nature and let myself exposed on the air and get a bit of moisture for my body. So I have bad record of riding my bicycle SLOWLY in the rainy days with the water dripping down from the hair and still showing my smiley face. I reckon that was weird
But….I have found out that my husband is weirder than me. The reason I say that is because I have noticed that he has a very strange obsession with covering the head (or hair whatever) in rain. The first thing he would urge me to do in a rain is to cover my hair with whatever something hands-on. Why would he do that? It doesn’t make a difference to get wet on the body or on the head. The head isn’t weaker than the rest parts of the human body. Anyway, I don’t argue for that, just do whatever he likes me to do
The rain only lasted for one hour or so in the morning. That was all. The wind did blow, the clouds did show up, but nothing was exciting enough to cheer a farmer up. Around the lunch time, it was quite warm and bright outside there AGAIN. What can we do???
