Sunshine and Rain

I arrived in Florida, which is known as the Sunshine State, in a rainstorm. The rain lessened as I arrived at the hotel and i was able to walk down the street for supper.

It was overcast, but not raining when I left for the office; it was at the end of the day. I was driving down the freeway in pouring rain. The traffic report on the radio notified me that Orlando was encountering light to medium downpours. I laughed, for the rain was coming down in a manner that did fit the description of moderate.

This morning as I drove back to work I realized that the radio had been right. The downpour on the previous evening was moderate compared to the rain through which the traffic was moving. It was less cats and dogs and more lions and dire wolves.

I am convinced that Florida’s nickname is the least accurate one of the fifty.
