    Oh Well..

    Okay so of course it was one of those many blistering summers we always get every year here in north carolina and we'd all been praying for rain for MONTHS. When it finally came me and my family were all sitting out on the porch with our fingers crossed. I think I was 16. I was...

    Hurricane

    It was a few years ago durring a hurricane. It was a level 3, I was under sea level and we couldn't get the door to close because the waves kept breaking on it. The rain died off a bit and I went outside to let my dog out. It was still raining and there were jelly fish in my yard...

    Our First Dance

    I remember our first dance.  We had been invited by one of our favorite local musicians to a dance party at a venue in town.  There was quite a crowd there.  Anyway, we had a blast.  We had never really danced together before.  I was really impressed.  She says she's not...

    Summer Camp Square Dancing

    We would square dance at the camp I went to... and one summer it was simply pouring down rain.  There was no thunder or lightning, so the director had us out there, dancing through the puddles!  We all laughed ourselves silly, and loved just about every second of it.

    Every year, kind of as a tradition, my family and I and some family friends, always go to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in August. Usually when we go there's always a hurricane about to come so we get all the pre-weather. And I remember my friend Victoria and I were just coming in...

    Whenever it rains, I like to go out and dance in it. Extremely freeing and exciting with lighting or not.

    Let's Do It Again!

    I grew up beside six boys... the second youngest was my best friend.  Whenever there was a sun shower he'd be banging at my door telling me it was time. I loved it, we'd dance in the middle of the street and just have so much fun playing!  I'm thinking that next time it rains I...
