Soggy Season

It’s raining here in the Bluegrass—as it did all through the night, as it has across much of the country this week.

If it’s starting to get you down (your basement is flooded, some driver flew through a puddle that ended up on your new shoes, you’d planned an outdoor egg hunt for the dozen or so children coming to your home tomorrow), here’s a little upside from someone who spoke eloquently about any subject presented to him:

“Rain! whose soft architectural hands have power to cut stones, and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains.”
—Henry Ward Beecher

[Art by Albert Bierstadt.]
