I'm participating in Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.
My chosen writing prompt: Listen. Write about what you hear, right now.
It's 4:30 am and I wake to the sound of rain. Pounding rain. I live in the Pacific Northwest so this sound shouldn't startle me however, when it sounds like you are living within a rushing river, it takes your senses by surprise.
My mind starts reeling with thoughts of mud, mudslides, trees toppling and flooding. Yes, I worry a lot. There are still some leaves on the trees and with hard rain they fall and clog our neighbors street drain which leads to not only their driveway flooding but the sidewalk, the street and surrounding driveways as well. We've had our own little mudslides that have taken parts of our backyard with it. A tree one time. Ah, memories.
It's days like these where this song plays over and over and over in my brain:
Worrying about the weather - what a way to spend hours that should be spent sleeping. I can relate to the worrisome Piglet more than I care to say.
