It's Raining, It's Pouring
It's not officially spring yet but it is definitely the rainy season. It's rained every day for the last I don't know how long and more rain is in the forecast. It's been a mix of drizzle and downpours and general dampness with the occasional burst of sun, just for a moment or two though. Well, it got me to wondering what I should be expecting in total rainfall for the month of March. Come to find out that the Paris average for March is 6.2 inches compared to just 3.17 inches for Washington, DC! No wonder this Gustave Caillebotte painting, appropriately titled Paris Street, Rainy Day, looked so right when I visited the Musee Marmottan last week.
