Washed Out

We've had an awful couple of days of weather, with cool temps and rain. In fact, it was so chilly that I was tempted to build a fire, but was told by my kids to be a real man and deal with it. Enough said.

It all started at the market and pretty much ruined our day, and it's been steadily raining ever since. The irony of all this is that the previous week called for thunderstorms and it was beautiful, and this past week it was supposed to be beautiful and it rained. The day started off nicely, too. We loaded up the cars and headed over to the big city, and en route it started to drizzle. Now a little drizzle isn't a big deal, but it started to build, and by market time, it was coming down consistently. We were assured by the market manager that it was a passing system, the day was supposed to be beautiful, but no such luck. The rain just kept coming, and it was chilly, so we were cold and miserable, and as you might have guessed, the weather kept the customers away. Total bummer.

If that wasn't enough, the rain hasn't stopped. We haven't seen the sun for a couple of days now, and it continues to be cool. It sure doesn't feel like June. Then again, if it was hot and sunny, I'd find a way to complain about that, so I'll just keep my big mouth shut... for now.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Ross Pollack for the pic.
