A Rainy Day
That’s a gloomy morning. Everything seemed came from a black-and-white television receiver. I left home at 6:30 a.m. so that I won’t be late for the first class. When I was at the gate of neighborhood, I felt there was raindrop slide down through my bridge of the nose. It began to spot. In around one minute, God started crying instead of weeping. There were some naughty things that appear to you every day, however, they will disappear when you really need them. My umbrella is an excellent example. Shakespeare have said, “To be, or not to be. That’s a question.” And this kind of question I always meet in my daily life. At that moment, to keep going to school or to return home for an umbrella became a question. To not be late for the first class, my favorite physics, I chose the first one. Just at the time I made up my mind, a familiar male voice came to my ear from behind. “Lily (that’s how my family call me even until now.) Wait…Wait…” I turned back, and a man who with an umbrella running to me. Undoubtedly, he’s my father. “Lily, I am going to send you to school.” He said it with heavy breathes. “Okay…” I accepted it reluctantly but with no choice. My memory of childhood came to my mind again. Everyone is naughty around 5 years old. So am I. I was an energetic girl when I was a child. Maybe I was always full of energy; the chance I made mistakes was more than other girls do. Every time I did something wrong, the person who scold me loudly was always my father. After that, I always complain with tears to my mom. In my family, father stands for strict, Mom is harbor. My father is a man in average height, but he seems short because he is little hunchbacked. His grey hair made him look like in fifties; however he was just pass 40 that year. My father was like an old man seen from a distance. He is a man with little word even little smile. He suffered a sad childhood. My father lost his father (my grandfather) in his 10 years old. My grandmother raised.

Rainwater lashed down as lightning flashed and thunder roared. It had been bright and sunny the whole day . the sudden downpour half an hour ago caught Benjamin off guard because he had left his umbrella at home. How was he going to get home in the rain? Benjamin stood waiting at the bus stop for ten minutes. The rain did not look like it was stopping. Instead, it seemed to be getting even heavier! To make matter worse, the wind had started to blow. Just then, a gust of chilly wind blew the raindrops into the bus stop, Benjamin could feel that his hands were as frozen as ice. Benjamin was getting wet even under the shelter of the bus stop. He had to squat on the seat of the bus stop to keep his leg dry. He glanced at his watch, another fifteen minutes before his favourite programme ‘Mystery Mission’ came on the television. He particularly did not want to miss the episode that day as it was featuring Pro-bot, his favourite robot. Glancing at his watch yet again, Benjamin made up his mind. He held his bag over his head, took a deep breath and ran out of the bus stop into the rain. The heavy rain drenched Benjamin the moment he stepped out of the bus stop. Feeling cold, Benjamin started shivering. “I’ll just run to the nearest void deck,” he thought as he tried to.

Everyone hates it when it rains too much. They cause natural disasters, diseases etc. However, when it rains in the middle of the summer, its heaven on earth. I also experienced a rainyday . I was going to my best friend’s house; we had not met for many days . I was just going out when it started pouring cats & dogs. I went in with teary eyes since my mother firmly said that I should not go out at all in this weather. I thought that the rain was the worst thing ever. I was very sad. Therefore, I went in my room to sulk. I suddenly heard a bird chirping outside. As I looked out the window, my opinion about the rain suddenly changed. The scene was beautiful. I could smell the fragrance of the wet soil, hear the birds singing beautiful songs and feel the water droplets making the air cool. I felt the rain and the cool air brush my face through the open window. It was funny to see the people on the road scamper away as it started pouring very heavily. The plants and the trees, which had withered due to scorching heat over the past few weeks, seemed to spring back into life with the gentle touch of the raindrops. After a while, I could see a little snail crossing the path peacefully. This was the best day I had ever had. I thanked god for making it rain that day and I thanked my mom for not letting me go to my friend’s house for if I had gone I would have never got to see the beauty of mother nature. It.

Although being Saturday, the long expected beginning of the weekend that allows me to stay in bed much longer than usually, I was already awake and it was not even eight o’clock yet. Still lying in my comfortable bed wrapped up into my favorite, soft and warm, blue blanket, I could hear the pleasing sound of water flowing down the gutter. It was a rainy morning outside. Not being able to help myself from wondering why on earth I had to be the one getting up so early today, I tried to prolong my staying in bed as much as possible. After few more minutes of stretching and trying to hide myself from the morning light by putting my head under the softness warmth of my bedclothes, I decided to finally get up. Still sleepy and a little bit dizzy after the fiery jump out of the bed, I stumbled towards the large window of my room in order to prove my aforementioned “rainy morning theory”. After moving the large white-and-orange curtain I started opening the blinds. All of a sudden, I couldn’t see a thing, as if someone had put another, white as snow curtain in front of me. Rubbing my eyes, I managed to realize what this was about. The fog was everything I could see. Unusually white, heavy fog was not letting me see anything I usually see. I couldn’t even see the raindrops that were making an apiary like sound while running down the gutter. After having dressed and prepared for going outside in order to pay a visit to my dentist I was still having.

Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant(sedative)- it slows down the body’s functions and its effects are similar to those of a general painkillings. Ethyl alcohol (ethanol) is the active ingredient in all alcoholic drinks. Ether is an anesthetic that works on the brain and puts it to sleep. The same symptoms operating patient experiences under ether are those experienced by a person drinking alcohol.intro Ethanol is commercially produced using a process called fermentation. Many other alcohols can be made this way, but are more likely to be produced by artificial routes - from natural gas, oil or coal. Yeast cannot survive in high levels of alcohol, so to create stronger spirits an additional process, distillation, is required. Fermented drinks are distilled to create vodka, rum and other spirits. Distillation depends on ethanol having a lower boiling point than water. When the fermented drink is heated the ethanol vaporises at 78.5 degrees and the water is left behind (water boils or vaporises at 100 degrees). The ethanol gas is caught and cooled so it condenses into a stronger concentration of ethanol liquid. In wine making the sugars come from the flesh of the crushed grapes. The type of wine produced depends on the type of grape used in the process. Alcohol is created when grains, fruits, or vegetables are fermented. Fermentation is a process that uses yeast or bacteria to change the sugars in the food into alcohol. Alcohol and the body Once.

Go Away, RainyDay It always seems like that one day that is supposed to go perfectly, mother nature comes and washes it all away. Just when your day looks bright the rain turns the sky like night. In the beginning its not so bad, the spotty drizzles and soft mists give you hope that its just a small wave. But as each cloud expands like rising dough you start to lose a little more hope that your ruined plans wont cause woe. You face the fact that you have to alter your plans but “this little bit of rain” won’t stop you. As you begin to notice that old bathed dog smell, you are realizing your day might be over when it hasn't even started. Eventually the last inch of sun gets covered and your enthusiasm settles. Each drop brings you down more and more, dog piling onto your clothes. The damper and heavier your shirt gets the more depressing your mood becomes. Within every second of that constant water bashing rigorously your hatred for the day builds. After awhile your hope grows narrow. The rain pushes you down like a middle school bully. But as you sit in sorrow, you pay attention to it less and less. Without you noticing, the constant bashing becomes faint. The chirps of the birds overpower that distant bashing. As the sun slithers a glare into your room, you dash to the window, eyes widened with purpose and hope. In those first steps outside you smell a breeze of life and happiness. All.

RainyDays Essay By Taylor Chance 11/20/13 Rainydays are wonderful to me. Sometimes they can be a hassle but I still love them. The only time I usually have rainydays is when it is July though. Rainydays are awesome to me sense I can do a lot of things in my own house. The reasons why I like rainydays mainly is because I can sing, listen to music, relax, and eat comforting food. First of all, the reason I like rainydays is because I love to sing. During my rainydays sense the air is usually moist and the temperature is usually cold, it is my favorite time to practice. The climate actually helps my voice by making it very moist instead of dry. If I sing with a dry throat, it will damage my vocal chords and it would also damage my tonsils since I would be straining my voice. So I like to play it on the safe side and practice the most on rainydays . Nonetheless, I love to listen to music on rainydays . I mostly listen to sad or calm music because it relaxes me and brings out my emotions. It gets even better when I look out the window and I see the gloomy, wispy, and foggy roads and the grasshoppers, birds, and squirrels take cover under big, green trees or leaves with.

A rainy day in Philadelphia doesn't have to be a washout. (Photo: Comstock/Comstock/Getty Images )Related Articles
Don't let rain put a damper on your adventures in Philadelphia; the City of Brotherly Love can be just as lovable in the rain as in the sun. In fact, with fairly snowy winters and summer temperatures often reaching well into the 90s, the rain can bring a welcome break from seasonal extremes. It also can provide an opportunity to enjoy some of Philly's best-known sites and hidden treasures.Historic Sites
Philadelphia's most popular attractions, where the Founding Fathers literally made history, do not have to be bypassed in rainy weather. In fact, it can be an opportunity to visit sites like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall (nps.gov) without typical crowds. You can grab timed tickets for the historic sites early in the day at Independence Visitor Center (independencevisitorcenter.com). Bring an umbrella for the two-block walk from the center to Independence Hall, then head north to see the National Constitution Center (constitutioncenter.org), Betsy Ross House, Christ Church and more, or hop one of the many trolley tours for a dry ride around Old Town.
Many people know Rocky Balboa's famous run up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (philamuseum.org), and you can enjoy the masterpieces inside the museum that date as far back as 3000 B.C. For the young ones, there's the Please Touch Museum (pleasetouchmuseum.org), full of hands-on play. Families will enjoy the Franklin Institute (fi.edu), with its many scientific exhibits and planetarium. The Eastern State Penitentiary (easternstate.org) and Mummers Museum (mummersmuseum.com) are just a couple of sites focused on unique aspects of Philly history. With many other museums around the city, you could spend several rainy days and not be able to see them all.
In and around the city, unique shopping experiences abound. Take in the smells and tastes of the Reading Terminal Market (readingterminalmarket.org) inside a former downtown train station, or visit the Italian market (italianmarketphilly.org) for fresh foods in South Philly. Shop boutiques you'd normally find on New York's Fifth Avenue or Beverly Hill's Rodeo Drive on Philly's Chestnut Street, or just outside the city at King of Prussia Mall (kingofprussiamall.com). Grab a bargain at one of several outlet malls within an hour's drive of Center City, too.
Once upon a time visitors to Philadelphia would have to get in the car and drive about an hour east for the glitz of casino gambling. Now, casinos are popping up much closer to Philly than Atlantic City. Areas within and around the city limits are home to a growing number of casinos. Visitors will find familiar names like Harrah's (harrahschester.com) and relative newcomers like Parx (parxcasino.com) and SugarHouse (sugarhousecasino.com). With easy access from Interstate 95, guests will enjoy tens of thousands of square feet of slots, tables, dining, entertainment and more.References About the Author

A rainy day is a day of both pleasure and pain. It is a day of trouble and annoyance to the office going people. The roads and streets in some towns and cities get flooded. The traffic has to stop for hours together. The office-goers have to suffer from various inconveniences. The pedestrians with umbrellas or waterproofs are seen trudging along the muddy streets.
But for the school going children, it is a delight to have a rainy day. If it rains heavily before school time they get a holiday. Such a holiday means a lucky gain to them. The peasantry welcomes the rainy day; for it helps them to resume the labors that the delay of the rain had interrupted.
A Rainy Day brings both joy and problems at the same time. When it rains too heavy, the roads are flooded as the drains cannot carry such a large volume of water. We can see cars, buses, scooters and taxies are stranded in knee deep or more water in some areas due to water logging. After the water has receded people in good number come out of the place where they took shelter during the rain, now rushing towards their home, some for buses and taxies which have started playing in the roads.
After the rain, the trees look fresh and green. Birds are chirping happily in the trees. Every pit and pond is full to the brim. The shops are now seen open and the normal work starts. Reaching home after the rain every man feel refreshed both in mind and body.Post navigation Related Posts Short Paragraph on Postman
I'm in Melbourne often enough - so why not write a bit about some places I've seen :)
Published May 1st 2012
So winter is fast approaching, which means the rain will be increasing. But as those familiar with Melbourne city will know, the rainy days aren't contained only to winter! So these are some delightful places to head to when the rain starts pouring down during any season of the year.
1. Head to Federation Square. You might get rained on a bit dashing from Flinders Street station across the road to Fed Square, but once you get there you'll find shelter in a number of forms. Grab a bite to eat at Feddish. see what's happening at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI ), or have a look at the Kirra Galleries for some great gift ideas.

2. Catch tram route 86 into Harbour Town Shopping Centre. Although the shopping centre is outdoors, you can run madly between shop to shop to stay out of the rain, and always duck into a nice little cafe for some warm coffee and a comfy chair.
3. Stay warm inside Melbourne Central. Devour some food from the numerous eateries, check out what movies are on at Hoyts cinemas, or indulge in some retail therapy which will be bound to leave your purse lighter than when you arrived.
4. The Melbourne Museum will always have something to see and do for the whole family, so head to Nicholson Street in Carlton and check it out. Children are free and adults need to pay only a meagre $10 entry, concessions available, and a whole day a fun and warmth awaits.
5. Catch a train to Parliament station and admire some of the beautiful architecture of the buildings such as the Old Treasury Building, St Patrick's Cathedral and Parliament House. If the rain is getting heavier, don't worry because you can admire these building from the inside! Admission is free which is always a bonus.

St Patrick's Cathedral
6. Opposite Melbourne Central on is the State Library of Victoria. Again, this is another freebie so why not head inside and stay dry. Read some books, challenge your friends to a game of chess, and have a look at the exhibitions around the library.
7. If you're up for a bit of outdoor adventure in a warm, dry indoor environment, the challenge of rock climbing awaits right in the heart of Melbourne. Catch a tram up Swanston Street and it will be hard to miss Hardrock. an indoor rock climbing centre. With the open glass windows keep in mind that anyone travelling along Swanston can see into the building, so make sure you're prepared to show off those skills.
8. Admire the incredible artworks and exhibitions at The National Gallery of Victoria. With free admission and a designated kids room, this one is great for the whole family.

9. It's cold enough outside, so you've nothing to lose by going ice skating. The Medibank Icehouse in the Docklands is great fun. Show off your balance and talents or laugh along while you make a fool of yourself, either way you'll have a blast. Entry prices vary from $12-$25 depending on age and concession.
10. You know what, sometimes nothing beats a walk in the rain. Rug up with a warm coat, wrap a scarf around, get the umbrella out, and why not stroll through the streets and catch a glimpse of a gorgeous rainbow lighting up the city skyline.
Keep a few of these options in mind and don't feel any pressure to do them all in one day; Melbourne will have plenty of rainy days in store for us all! Don't shy away from the unpleasant weather, there is plenty to do in the city on such days. You never know, a rainy day in Melbourne may turn out to be one of your most memorable.
