Thursday 3 – Rain

Nov 2, 2011

Time for a Thursday 3 questionnaire.  Since it’s been raining all week, I figured Rain would be the topic.

 

So cut and paste the questions and add your answers or simply answer the questions by number.  And don’t hesitate to leave additional comments, stories, and other tidbits of information about Rain.

 

  1. Do you love or loathe Rain?
  2. Were you allowed to play in the rain?
  3. Name me a song with the word “Rain” somewhere in the title or lyrics.

 

Okay, here’s my replies:

 

  1. Do you love or loathe Rain?
    I love the rain.  Nothing like feeling so secure in your house while it’s raining outside.  Especially when it’s time for bed – falling asleep to the pitter-patter of the rain falling on the roof.  Which reminds me, we need new gutters…
  2. Were you allowed to play in the rain?
    Never.  About the most we could do when we were kids was stand under the loud totan roof when it was raining and stick out hands out to catch some raindrops.
    But once the rain stopped – it meant jumping on our bikes and riding as fast as we could through the rain puddles.  We always made sure we lifted our legs up to make sure our pants didn’t get wet.
  3. Name me a song with the word “Rain” somewhere in the title or lyrics.
    Before The Rain – Lee Oskar

    “On a Sunday morn sat a maid forlorn
    With her sweetheart by her side,
    Through the windowpane, she looked at the rain,
    “We must stay home, Joe,” she cried.
    “There’s a picnic, too, at the old Point View,
    It’s a shame it rained today.”
    Then the boy drew near, kissed away each tear,
    And she heard him softly say:
    “Wait till the sun shines, Nellie,
    When the clouds go drifting by,
    We will be happy, Nellie,
    Don’t you sigh.
    Down Lover’s Lane we’ll wander,
    Sweethearts you and I.
    Wait till the sun shines, Nellie,
    Bye and bye.”

    “Wait ‘Til the Sun Shines Nellie,”

    Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain
    Rained real hard and rained for a real long time
    Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline”

    Bot.

    One time on the H-1 going east, it was just raining cats and dogs. When we hit the Mapunapuna area, cars were actually stalled in the far right lane. It must have been high tide because the of the drainage problem. But boy ‘yo boy, that was some deluge.

  66. Seawalker
    November 5th, 2011 at 9:54 pm #

    For you Kaneohe residents and beyond, when it rains hard, the part of Kamehameha Highway by Waiahole Valley is just covered with water. There’s nothing to do but just sit in your car and wait until the water subsides. Why can’t they just elevate the road to improve drainage? Oh, I forgot… they want to keep the country, country.

    1. Do you love or loathe Rain? I don’t like being caught in a heavy rain – especially with no umbrella – but I like to fall asleep to the sound of it.
    2. Were you allowed to play in the rain? We were told we’d get sick if we played in it, but I remember I loved to run around in summer showers as a kid.
    3. Name me a song with the word “Rain” somewhere in the title or lyrics. Mahalo for leaving some songs for me to mention:
