Rain, Rain Go Away
They say that into every life a little rain must fall.
What they don't say is that into every bedroom with shabbily installed windows, a lot of heavy rains must fall so that one wakes up to moving water on one's wood floors.
They also don't say anything about corrupt condo management declaring heavy rains to be a monsoon in an attempt to absolve themselves of responsibility. Because as everyone knows, DC does have its yearly bout with monsoon weather (not).
They also failed to mention a flood of untruths and unsubstantiated charges that could culminate in a swirling tide of frustration and tears.
But, hey, you really cannot expect them to tell you everything. And "they" are not to be blamed. My home still stands while people in the Midwest have seen their homes washed away.
But, hey, every storm has its rainbows and the rain makes things grow.
