Never! The sun will never ever be the light of day again at this rate. Here is Environment Canada’s forecast for the rest of the week:
Wednesday: Rain – at times heavy
Thursday: Rain – at times heavy
Friday: Periods of rain
Saturday: Chance of showers – 70% (read: it’s going to rain. Even 30% means it’s going to rain around here)
THIS HAS TO STOP!!!! Saskatchewan weather is still the craziest in all the world, but this is a little ridiculous. Two weeks ago there was snow. Today the rain is pouring down in 5,000 gallon pails, the grass is green, and there are FLOWERS!!!! planted in flower boxes outside my corner grocery store. What kind of weird universe is this?
Now, I like rainy days. Always have. But they were few and far between in Saskatchewan – like a little treat. My siblings accused me of praying for clouds and rain when we were little. I don’t think I ever did – except for those days when the whole school was supposed to go out to some camp and play games in the forest – trust games and get-to-know-each-other games. I prayed for rain then, but trust me, I was saving us all. But now that I walk to school every day in the rain, that my pants get completely soaked, that my boots really aren’t waterproof like they said they were, and that I constantly feel like a wet mop – the rain is not my friend anymore. I mean, I just read that by the end of the week, we will have had more rain than Calgary gets in an ENTIRE YEAR! Come on! And they’ve given this phenomenon a cutsie name too – “Tropical Punch”! Tee hee! GRRRR!!!!
Oh, the rain!
