A friend of my mom used to say that life is 'stripped', meaning there is both black and white and there will always be. The best you can do is to shelter when it deluges outside, make the best of the situation you have and wait for the rain to stop. No matter how hard the rain is puring down: at the end, it always does.
I sat under a beach shower with an umbrella at 6AM. You know, a perfectly normal way to start the day. You may get strange looks from people who passes by, but it's fun.
