I really, really, really wanted to go a whole month without posting about how bad our weather is for this year. I broke down. Today I am going to type a little diatribe about today, and the rain that has fallen so far. And of course, I have a photo to prove my point.
I had plans for this morning. A morning hike along the river, and then drop off some borrowed items to a friend who owns a shop here in town; I had several books, CDs and a patch-cord I borrowed from him a week ago that I promised I would return to him today. I was going to return all of my friend’s items on foot. When I awoke this morning, I was feeling a little sore from the work week. I did a lot moving, physical type work, so my body was telling me to slow down and take it easy. When I heard the rain hitting my roof, well, that was the sign to lay right back to bed and contemplate an alternative plan for today’s “to-do” list.
It seemed the more I waited, the worse the rain came down.
When I got up and made some coffee, I turned on my computer and click on Twitter. I friend of mine was complaining about how hot it was in Toronto. I laughed to myself, “if only they could have some of Vancouver’s weather right now.”
The funniest tweet I wrote was, “So comparing the two cities: Vancouver, raining and 16C. Toronto, scorching 33C, need suntan lotion SPF1500 and 1 beer per every 10 min.” That Tweet got retweeted about five times so far.
So, I think I can speak for everyone here along the West Coast that we need at least one good day of summer for this long weekend! Happy Canada day!
