As I was walking home, it started raining one and a half blocks before I got to my house. I had an umbrella in my backpack, but I opted not to use it. I wanted to have the experience of being rained on. I highly recommend the experience.
Even people not from this area know that southern Wisconsin has been inundated with rain and flooding. What is creepy is how familiar I am with the places affected by the disaster.
A month or two before I started the regimen, I almost returned a belt I'd just bought because it felt a bit too tight. Five months later, I've stopped wearing the belt because it no longer fits me. It's too loose.
