After my post yesterday, the rain fell off and on.
When I left the house to go pick up Jenna, the sky was pouring down water from the sky. POURING. I had to return to the house for different shoes so my feet wouldn't get wet.
I had grabbed Jenna's umbrella and coat as that morning we had both left the house with just sweatshirts and I knew she wouldn't be prepared. The spine came out of her umbrella as I was putting it into my bag.
Roland had forgotten his phone, but I can text him through an texting system that he set up through his computer at work. I told him that it was pouring and asked if he could meet us at the school. It would be an hour wait, but still. Jenna and I are both okay with the rain, really. But she is currently taking swim lessons, and I didn't know if the weather would interfere with the bus schedule running on time.
When I exited the bus less than 20 minutes later, the sky was barely drizzling. No one in Salt Lake even knows how to dress anymore. I notice people wearing shorts and coats, sandals and sweaters, or packing extra stuff - I fall into that third category. It's not nice to have to pack a parka, an umbrella, a light sweater, sunglasses and boots - just in case. I'm not a pack mule!
The sun was shining as we waited for Roland. The rain fell again as the sun was shining. Jenna took my umbrella and danced around while I waited under the awning. Roland didn't arrive when we had expected. I told him to meet us in front, but ventured around the school to see if I could see the car behind the school. I do tend to misunderstand.
He wasn't behind the school. He had stopped off at McDonald's to surprise us with dinner. We ate on the way to the train station where he dropped us off so that we could continue to Jaime's class. The weather and traffic conditions may interfere with the bus schedule. It is rare when the train doesn't run on time.
