I wasn’t going to blog about the weather but then I decided that I need to write at least one post for historical information. I just took this photo out my back door at 7 a.m. This is pretty much what our sky has looked like everyday this month. The last day we had a truly sunny morning was June 8. We did have one morning last week with a couple of breaks in the clouds. Overall though, dreary has been the predominant theme; sometimes with rain and sometimes with fog. There has been no severe weather–not really even a scary thunderstorm and certainly no earthquakes, hurricanes, or tornadoes.
I was looking forward to June seeing as each of the previous months didn’t have much good weather to boast about either. I was ready for really building up my hand-dyed roving inventory. My plan was to dye at least 3 to 4 days a week. I think I may have dyed only 2 or 3 times this month! July and August–I’m counting on you!
The weather is not doing much for bringing on the joy of summer vacation either. Yesterday was the last day of school and it was rather anti-climatic. It is hard to get excited when you can’t even imagine what it would be like to go swimming or even for a bike ride! Agent J has had her last 3 softball practices canceled due to rain. Agent K who has a job picking strawberries keeps coming home waterlogged. When I talk to my dad every morning, the featured conversation is “yeah, it’s raining again…” People are running out of clever and sarcastic things to say about the weather on Facebook even! Sunshine – we need you back!
