"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to TAG ME in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Good morning Dorie Dillard Austin TX 
I've heard the weather has been crazy this week in Texas.  The westside of Washington State is gettin slammed with snow which they aren't used to or really prepared for.  I'm glad to live in Eastern Washington where we are used to it and have proper equipment for dealing with it.
