RAIN, RAIN, RAIN.

What do you do when it is raining heavily and you must stay indoors, and added to that - your internet goes off for a couple of hours? . Well, that was my situation earlier today, but I didn't panic. Instead I made myself some hot cocoa, turned up the music and went through some old albums of family photos. Pictured above is one of me in my twenties. This is supposed to be the beginning of summer here in the Caribbean but it is also the beginning of the hurricane season, so the current burst of bad weather is not totally unexpected. How do you like to spend your day when it is cold and raining outside?

Reading an interesting book would be a good way to pass the time.

if it is cold and raining outside, i would like to sit in front of the TV sipping my cold water and munching some junk foods. it is better too if we don't have power interruption, because that usually happens when it rains hard

A power outage would definitely make matters worse. In our case we have had internet interruptions throughout the day.

Because I am such a busy body, even though I don't like cloudy rainy days, it is an opportunity for me to relax inside and watch my favorite shows or movies. I can also catch up on writing and crafts.

Yes, there are many ways to pass the time when one is forced to stay indoors.

@Kandae11, I like spending a day like that listening to music and reading. I like the black and white photo, so pretty, but, what colours were your top? If you don't mind me asking :)

I should have had that one taken in color. Actually it is a handpainted wrap designed by my sister. It could also be worn as a skirt.

With forty inches of rain since January 1, we have had a lot of days like that, but the internet remained available and I practiced my guitar too. Oh I must add that the photo is beautiful!

I saw there are two strong systems in the Caribbean right now so I hope you will be safe. I watch the rain out my window while I work on my computer, which it's been doing a lot of for the past week and it's still in the forecast this week, but not every day, which is good. We have clouds again today and no sun at the moment.
