Bloganuary 2023 #7 – Write a short story or poem about rain.

It doesn’t rain much in the south of Spain, but when it does rain, it pours! When I was a teenager we lived out in the countryside in the south of Spain, 2km from the village of Cómpeta, down a dirt track. Whenever it rained there was a chance the track was washed away or blocked by stones from landslides. This meant a lot of weekend were spent keeping the track clear, preparing for rainy days. When we knew a storm was coming, we would leave the cars at the top of the track, to make sure we could get them out the next day. I remember one wet winter, we left the car at the top of the track and carried a 12kg Christmas turkey down the track!

Even now, living in a large town, I’ll still joke with my husband when it rains and say:
At least we don’t have to worry about the track!
