Who'll Stop the Rain?
There's something impressive about looking at the five-day weather forecast and seeing:
WEDNESDAY: Showers, followed by rain.
THURSDAY: Sunny, high in the mid-70s. (Just kidding: Rain.)
The weather map in the paper looks like some sort of mistake, as if someone had misaligned a printing plate or laid some wire mesh over the page: Stylized raindrops spread across the mid-Atlantic like so many monster fish scales.
I tend to want to blame someone for the rain. (My wet English spring last year inspired similar impulses.) Of course, I know it's not anyone's fault. I suppose I could blame God. Or whatever butterfly happened to set off the chain of events that culminated in me ending up soaked and shivering. (I spent most of yesterday outside, in the rain.)
The most immediate effect of this weather pattern is that I won't get around to mowing my lawn this week. And as I didn't get around to mowing it last week, things are looking pretty rough and shaggy in the front yard. It's not quite reached the stage where small neighborhood children are at risk of going missing in it, but I expect we'll be there by this weekend, when the sun should reemerge and dry things out.
How about you?
