Rain, Rain Go Away...

  So I  got up Friday morning and made the 2 hour drive to Constanta to visit my husband's aunt, uncle, cousin, his wife and son.  As soon as me and the kids got in the car to leave Tulcea, the rain started - no exaggerating.  It literally POURED, and of course the idiot drivers here, scare me to death during good weather, imagine my nerves in the pouring rain  through winding roads, yes the highway has these hairpin curves - it's crazy, and people think it's totally cool to pass someone in a curve - MORONS!  Thankfully the kids sat still and quiet in the backseat, maybe because I threatened to pull the car over and wear out thier heinies if they didn't stay seated and buckled up!  My 3 year old son wat the only one who wouldn't stay in a seat belt, yeah, I know, but, what ya goona do?!? 

  I was hoping to take the kids to the beach, and take tons of pictures, but the rain kinda of prevented that, maybe when I go back from them in 2  weeks it won't be raining, I don't know we shall see!  It was pouring rain when I got back from  Italy 3 weeks ago, it rained so much that the Danube river has spilled over into the city, people who live in the lower laying areas of the city are flooded out of their apartments and houses.  THe city is giving those whose hourses are flooded free rooms in local hotels that include meals, some family showed up at my mother in law's house last night evidentally to stay with her instead of going to a hotel.  This irritated my MIL to no end.  My MIL is a piece of work, she has her good points, as well as her irritating ones.

  Anyway, so it has been raining non stop here.  It's good cause it helps cool it off a bit, however I don't think this part of Romania has seen this much rain in YEARS.  I'm ready for it to stop, I would like to take my son to the lake to swim while his sisters are staying with their G.Aunt, Uncle & cousins in Constanta for the next 2  weeks.

I've seen floods and I've seen droughts, and I have yet to decide which causes the most grief.
