How are you feeling about the rainy season that is now upon us?

Around Town

Jo Gibbons

Realtor

I think it's lovely to have all of this rain. After it rains, the air smells so clean and fresh. And the rain helps fill our reservoirs, which of course is always a great thing.

Bill Gibbons

Contractor

If our reservoirs are full and there is therefore no concern about a drought, I'm not so happy about the rainy season. On the other hand, when we need the rain, I welcome the rainy season.

Raul Perdomo

Gardener

Well, I like it because I know we need the rain. However, on the other hand, I don't like it because when it is raining out, I cannot work — and when I'm not working, I'm not earning money to support my family.

Candace Cease

Retired

I think it's wonderful. The rainy season provides a great opportunity for staying inside and reading books, and the rain will help my garden thrive, come spring. Plus, breaks in the rain provide a perfect opportunity to meet up outdoors with friends at the very inviting and comfortable fire pit tables at McKay's.

Martha Jennings

Customer service

Well, I don't like taking my dog George out to walk in the rain, and he doesn't especially enjoy those wet walks, either. But the rain is so critical that I honestly don't mind it at all, and just regard it as a minor inconvenience.
