Today it's pissing rain. It doesn't feel as though the temperature is in the 60s (which, according to the thermostat, it is) - it feels colder. It's one of those soaking rains that just chills your bones. And toes. I hate wet toes.
Our driveway is not totally paved, and there are a few ruts where water has puddled. As I sat in my car, settling in before starting my drive to work, I saw a blackcapped chicadee cavorting in the puddle. Cavorting! Splashing in the water, letting it run (and rain) down on her head. Totally enjoying the rain and the puddle and nature.
Sometimes, it must be a good thing to be a bird.
