Thanks, Peekskill Daily Voice newsletter!

If you actually want to read about the rain (and future sun), you can do so at the site here. If you prefer to listen to Elvis Costello singing “When That I Was and a Little Tiny Boy” from Twelfth Night with the accompaniment of saxophonist John Harle, you can hear about how the rain it raineth every day.
