Looks like it’s Cloudy with a slight chance of Rain in the USA

Okay, did I say slight?  Well, I totally lied.  As you can see from the photo above, it Rained quite heavily on Cloud USA a few days ago.

A huge THANK YOU to Cloud USA’er Michele DeMarco for sending us a humongous box filled with Rain goodies that she picked up while she was in Seoul in July.   Thanks to Michele, our contest/giveaway stash has been revitalized and is raring to go again.  Michele, we are ever so humbled by your generosity.  We look forward to sharing these items with our USA Clouds, who are so rarely able to obtain Rain stuff on this side of the planet.

You should have seen me.  What Michele said when she got back from Seoul was that she was going to “send us a few things” she had picked up there.  So, when the clerk at the mail center put a huge box and a poster tube on the postal scale at the counter, my eyes widened.  What in the world?, I thought.  I was so startled that the guy said, “Don’t worry.  It’s not as heavy as it looks.”  LOL.

Poor fella.  It was obvious from the look on his face that he was absolutely dying to know what was inside, especially in light of Michele’s unique labeling.  Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to get home and dig into the box that I smiled and rushed out without a word, leaving him standing there with his mouth open. 😀

My delight upon opening the box at home was palpable.  Even my family members stopped eating dinner long enough to ooh and ah over the Rain stuff.  (That one was really funny.)  What amazes me the most (besides the quantity of items we received) is the quality of the items.  The manufacturing of every single one of these treasures will delight you all.  Truly.  They are so PRETTY in real life.  Like Rain, the photos below just do not do them justice.

I tell you, for a moment there, my den’s sofa was every Cloud’s DREAM.  LOL.  Now we just have to figure out what we’re going to do with these things exactly.  Anyone out there got any ideas? 😉

Terri :-}

P.S.   One hint.  If all goes well, we will be making a Cloudburst trip to New Orleans in the September/October timeframe (exact timeline TBD).  And just so you know, SOME of these goodies will be tagging along.   😀

  7. you know if you really don’t know what to do with all that stuff I’d gladly take them of your hands :p
    I’m happy for you guys and a little jealous I can’t get my greedy little hands on anything that has to do with Rain unless I enter a contest, but that’s the downside of living so isolated.
    do you guys know where I can maybe buy any Rain related stuff online ?? I’ll be 35 on Oct 4th and I thought I’d treat myself

    • Eva,

      I have a feeling a lot of Clouds would be happy to do that. LOL.

      Yes, it’s terribly difficult to find Rain stuff here in the U.S., isn’t it? Unless maybe in NYC or LA.

      You can find some items on Amazon.com. If you access the pages via our store at http://cloudusa.org/our_store.html, then we actually get paid a few pennies for each purchase. If you find anything you like there, that would be greatly appreciated. All monies received via our store go to Cloud USA’s operating costs.

      Sometimes we also have good luck on Ebay, but you gotta watch Ebay sellers. Some of them are real trouble.

      Terri :-}
