Today is a wet and dreary day. The temperature is warm, but the sky has been dark all day. It's not particularly violent or exciting rain, just the type of rain the comes down rather steadily. It seems a while since we've had such weather – as the last incident I can remember was during the great snowstorm. Rain in February always reminds me of Valentine's Day in California. It was often rainy on Valentine's Day – and I remember making chocolates in the weeks before, or putting them in my soggy back on my way to school. There's something about the grey of February combined with the white, pink, and red, that makes it so sad yet sweet.
