Rose is Rose (5/7/09)

05-07-09 (Rose is Rose)

There’s a reason I carry an umbrella with me wherever I go; because clear skies can turn on a dime and drench unsuspecting pedestrians with buckets of rain. Sometimes storms arrive gradually, with clouds building over the course of the day, but they can also arrive suddenly like in today’s Rose is Rose. Even so, there are usually some hints of an impending shower, from a soggy smell in the air to a slight tinge in the clouds. There’s even a barely noticeable hint hidden in this strip. Notice how the sky turns slightly darker in panel two before turning a demonic purple in panel three? It’s very subtle, but sometimes that’s the only warning we get before the drops start falling.
