It rained during the night, and it continues to rain, although the rain is light—more a mist than a rain, actually. Nonetheless, my Dodge Nitro R/T is wet! I quickly accustomed myself with the operation of the intermittent wipers. While it is damp outside, it is certainly warmer than it has been. It has been 52 - 56 degrees in my office on recent morning arrivals at 7:30 AM. This morning, it was 63 degrees at that time. I realize we need the rain, but I dislike it. The forecast is for several days of rain. Yikes! At least the temperature will preclude the rain from turning to snow. There is that.
