You have no idea how absolutely amazing it is to jump on the trampoline in the pouring rain. If you look up at the rain, its like you are flying towards it, and it towards you and its so... I can't even explain it.

I know I have said I love rain before, but I just wanted to make sure that you knew. Only sometimes it ruins plans, like tomorrow if it rains we won't be able to go to the Symphony on the Prairie. And if that happens I will be extremely sad. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone again. Here is a poem about rain -

Rain is water,
Rain is sky,
Rain looks like clear glass falling from the high,
Sometimes it looks like snow,
Falling softly to the ground,
But then there may be the sprinkle,
Very few it may be,
But still it shall be rain,
When it hits the ground it looks like shattered glass
has fallen,
But softly though,
It falls,
Rain feels like wet warm showers,
But though sometimes it feels like cold,
Freezing water,
Rainbows appear above,
After the rain is gone,
I am sad because of this,
There is no rain,
But rain is my name

I normally don't like rain — Thursday afternoon in the monsoon area was my least favorite ECHO work — but I welcome it with our current weather. While Columbus, just an hour away, wants a break from rain, today was our first real rain since I returned from ECHO — and we still probably haven't received more than about an inch.

That's a great poem! I like rain, too...'cept when it ruins plans. I certianly hope it doesn't ruin your SOP plans for tonight! I wish I could be there...or in two places at once. *sigh* oh well. I may get to see you Sunday night! Oh and my blog let me post this time--check it out! :-) I want to come over and jump in the rain with you. I love you and miss you!

I don't see to what you referred about Ohio County :-), so I'll just give you a few facts.

• The Edwards family is on Dad's side.
• My great-great-grandfather, Clark Copper, was born in Indiana, somewhere up by Pendleton. However, he's on Mom's side.
• My Pockras grandparents lived in Gary for some time. However, I know of no├Âne else in Dad's family who has ever lived in Indiana. Certainly, none of my ancestors have lived in Ohio County.
• Lawrence County, Ohio, is the farthest-south county in the state, across the River from where Kentucky and West Virginia meet.
