It's July. This means burger season. If I have to go out in the rain to grill my burgers, so be it. It's summer.
There's a little supermarket not too far from my home. They don't have everything there, but they do have great veggies & the beef is freshly ground. I go in, with the plan of making korean-style beef burgers, I come out & feel as though I will be swept away with the flood rains pouring through the city. No matter, I have everything I need (an umbrella), so I walk home, start cooking & hope that rain will stop.

Hopefully these rains will stop for more than a few hours. There was a day of sun this week, maybe there'll be another one soon.
