100 Word Challenge: Rain

It was an exciting weekend around my house. A week ahead of schedule the first Tropical Storm of the season, Alberto, meandered it’s way into the Gulf of Mexico and came right up my back door.

(Hurricane Season officially runs from June 1 to November 30, but early storms are not uncommon.)

Truth be told, I was a smidge disappointed. Rain we had, and some wind, but nothing like a REAL hurricane. I have tree limbs to pick up in the yard (not a big deal, the tree is practically dead so the storm saved us the expense of having the tree removed), and a bunch of potted plants to bring out of the garage where we put them for safe keeping.

The next several months I’ll spend checking the NOAA website on the regular for pending storms and panicking/not panicking depending on how big the storm grows and where it’s trajectory is moving.

Been there, done that….

So the storm passed and every one was happy. Kate Chopin

This week’s word is:


(if you feel especially creative, use the word “petrichor” instead.)

What to do:

Using “rain” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.

  1. Your cavalier attitude toward hurricanes reminds me of the rain here in California. I’m used to it because I lived in Washington so I don’t panic when it happens, but it rains half an inch and the news is like STORM WATCH: 2018 and I’m like, “Um…it’s sprinkling…”
