Rain is predicted for a few days. It's true, it can clean the air, but it is a bit of a hassle in the city. The fields need the rain, though, and the snow packs need to be rejuvenated to give us water throughout the rest of the year.
Hunker down, put on rain coats and galoshes, and just tough it out.
As my dad says, "You're not made of sugar. You won't melt."
