Two Observations on Rain



Observation 1:

When you are out in the rain at night-time, you don't get half as wet as you do when you go out in the rain during the day.

Observation 2:
When you are driving along and it's not raining and you put your windscreen washers on, it often starts to rain.

I think this latter one is somehow tied in with the Meaning of Life.

Literal rain or metaphorical?

I've never had the experience of turning the rain on via my windshield-wipers; now I'm going to try it.
(Monkey see, monkey do...)

Hi Susan. 'Metaphorical'? Me? Naw, you get that stuff two doors up. :) I was thinking more of the spray of water that coincide with the wipers to wash the windscreen. So many times I have gotten the urge to give my windscreen a little spray in fair weather and found it to be raining when I've finished.

I have theories, of course, but probably best kept to myself. :)

And I think there's a mathematical equation about how wet you get multiplied by how long you've been in the rain divided by the use of umbrellas, slickers and rain boots.

But I could be wrong. I'm not very good at math.

As for the other, in Texas, it rains as soon as you wash your vehicle. Mine's pretty dirty. We could use some rain. I'm just sayin'.

Lolz.. Cool observations.. It's called Murphy's Law!

Lyndi said...

hehehe. Ken. there is help out there...

Ken Armstrong said...

Carol: If I *ever* go out without my umbrella, it rains. So I don't ('ever go out without my umbrella'... not 'ever go out') :)

Darshan: Murphy's Law seems to be all things to all people so, in that spirit, yes, yes, it is. :)

Lyndi: Funny, I've made the 'windscreen washers' observation to people in real life and their response has been exactly the same as yours. Hmm..

Incidentally, speaking of mental illness (and I think we were) Has anyone spotted the cat in the water on the windscreen in the post piccie yet... it's me again isn't it?

Penny said...

It looks like nothing to me *apart* from a cat now you said that.

As long as you don't do what the evil boy next door did to his sister and I when he got his first car. He turned the spray nozzles toward the outside of the car...and as we walked home, he'd drive by and spray us. :0

And Carol's right...or it's a southern law. One of the two.

Why do you go out in the rain at night
Why do you put your windshield wipers? on when it's not raining

?

I'm still trying to figure out why... ...if I put 2 socks in the dryer.......one disappears

???

Ken Armstrong said...

Penny: Whew, there *is* a cat there? That's a relief. :)

What about "Whenever you need it to rain, it doesn't." That's usually been my issue with rain. And also, "Just when you are about to embark on a long trip in the car, it starts to pour." Hmmm...these seem to be all "half empty" responses...

Ken Armstrong said...

Henson: True, Henson, whereas we both know that the cup remains, unerringly, half full.

No matter what!

Henson Ray said...

But of course, Ken. No question!
