When you live somewhere as weather obsessed as New England, you’re bound to have the occasional rainy weekend. We know that when it “rains on your parade” sometimes you have to parade-on with a raincoat or pack a change of clothes and go for it anyways. Don’t let it ruin your day. Rain is the reason why our forests are so green and that we have over 300 lakes and rivers in New Hampshire. Obviously, everything is better in moderation though.
Some people welcome the excuse to catch up on their television shows or curl up on a comfy cushion and get lost in a good book. I know that when Mother Nature decided to rain on my two days off this past weekend, The Templar Legacy that was tempting me from its seat on my bookshelf was just going to have to wait.
I beat the impending forecast with a warm-up run on Bear Brook’s Cascade Trail then I woke the next morning to pounding rain and thunder. I said to myself, “This is a great day for the Over the River and Through the Woods 5K Run for Animals in Concord,” and so I went. Then my weekend ended nicely on Sunday with a couple hikes to three different waterfalls in and near Franconia Notch State Park. All three falls were raging. We were drenched just standing near them from the spray.
I was having fun experimenting with Windows Movie Maker for the second time ever. Sorry if I went effect-crazy. Enjoy!
