Discriminating Rain

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

We are shopping at Aldi. We love this place. The new Aldi is across from Sam’s Club and Super Walmart, and it is so convenient to have all of them in practically one location. Plus there is Bravo very close.

By the time we go through the register, the downpour starts. It is this Florida rain, where you do not see anything, but it is short, you just wait a little bit and it subsides and stops soon, and the sun is back…

We are not particularly in a hurry, so we are standing by the wall of glass looking at the rain, people running to their cars…

When it slows down, my wife turns to me:

- It is already not bad, go and get the car.

Well, I have no intention of getting there right now, as in 3-5 minutes it is going to be much quieter. So I turn to her:

- You go. Here’s the key.

She looks into the window:

- Are you crazy? Look how bad it is. I am absolutely not going.

I am confused. If I go, it is fine. If she is going, it is crazy…

What a freaking discriminating rain…

Hi Jon- we could see the rains offshore this morning on our walk at the beach. As we walked past our car, we opted to grab our umbrellas just in case. You never know how quickly those rains can come onshore. And as luck would have it, we didn't need them.

Hannah Williams - I am checking your weather and our, and we are 3 degrees higher. Not a biggie. And I know that on the beach it is even cooler. I am not going to complain about the summer temperature, I would take it any day. Better than January :)

Kathy Streib - we never take umbrellas. The only concern is the iPhone if you get caught in the rain. Other than that, not a biggie. Got drenched quite a few times.

Years ago, when our first Aldi location opened on Long Island, I was there for the grand opening day. I didn't know it was a Trader's Joe operation and the products are really good. About the rain, it can be fickle, like a spouse...

Jill Sackler - I did not know there was something in common between ALDI and Trader Joe's. Interesting, learning something new

This is similar to when I open the 'frig, smell something funny, find the offending item and hand it to my husband: Here, taste this. Is this OK or is it spoiled? I mean, I wouldn't taste it.

Evelina Tsigelnitskaya - thank you for stopping by. I have always been curious of your work in Sunny Isles. The place looks gorgeous, but I can only imagine how difficult it is to penetrate that high-end market

Jon, this sounds like a typical conversation my wife and I would have in that same situation.
