I wouldn’t normally post this for a Friday Morning Video–I wasn’t much of a Hüsker Dü fan back in the day–but I was inspired this morning. We’ve had constant rain for six days–and when I say constant, I mean rain has not stopped falling from the sky in six days. Monday morning I came downstairs with my daughter, who protested, “Mommy, it’s not day yet!” That’s what it’s been like around here. Not just gray, but dark.
So imagine my delight this morning when I awoke to an almost-dry sidewalk–it hasn’t rained in six hours, at least!–and from my current vantage point, I can see bright clouds over the neighborhood of Munhall. Not sunshine or anything, mind you. Just brighter clouds. In fact, they’re the light yellow that an old bruise gets. Yesterday, the whole sky was a fresh black-and-blue mess. Today? more of a sickly ivory.
In celebration of this almost-break in the weather, I share this song, which you might recognize from my Unfathomably Good Music mix tape. Seeing as how the bright spots are over his neighborhood, I choose to thank the late, great Drew Martin for this little bit o’light brightening up our morning.
