While normally that's what our weather looks like, we do get a few curveballs thrown at us sometimes, and one of those is rain. When telling people I had decided to attend South, the first thing most people told me to do was invest in a good rain jacket and some rain boots! Originally, I thought they were just joking, but I am so happy I listened. Rain boots and an umbrella are almost like a necessity. Luckily, they make rain boots super cute, so I enjoy wearing them on those rainy Mobile days and splashing around in a few puddles on my way to class. Plus, my favorite part of the rainy days is that, right after it rains, it clears up, the sun comes out, and it's back to the perfect, normal Mobile weather. Personally, my favorite way to spend a rainy day is watching movies with my roomies, but sometimes it’s time to get out and embrace the rainy day to have some fun! Like this past weekend, even though it was raining, I made a trip to the USS Alabama, the outlet mall in Foley, the movies, and the beach. Now granted it wasn’t the best weather to be out and about doing everything I had planned, but I didn’t melt (as the old saying goes), and, actually, it was pretty fun still even when we got rained inside the battleship and a few stores at the outlets for a little while.
Basically, even though Mobile can be super rainy (and I mean really rainy…like rainiest city in the US per the WeatherBill in San Francisco), put on that rain jacket and pull up your rain boots and go have some fun! A little bit of rain water never hurt anyone!
