Rain on Back Order

So the silver-haired guy from the Department of Rain shows up in his fog-grey pickup truck with a clipboard and a receipt for me to sign.

"Here's the rain that you had on back-order," he says.

"You'll getting June's rain today, and July's tomorrow. August's will come the day after that.

"Sorry about the delay, and have a nice day."

Then he roars off through the puddles in the driveway.

Loved the post. Of course, we here in Walsenburg figured that the reason it is so cold is because Hell is attempting to freeze over. Reason for this being that my father has finally retired after over 25 years as a park ranger at the Grand Canyon.
