Holy buckets o’ rain!
My morning commute was the only time since Friday night that I didn’t need an umbrella – I’m sure you noticed the sheets of rain coming down all weekend! As a result, I was forced to cancel my plans for Saturday and Sunday – Zoo Ala Carte and Irish Fest – two highly anticipated events.
These events are primarily held outdoors, so the rain definitely discouraged many from attending. On the other hand, I know a couple of people that didn’t let the rain hold them back (this is why I love Milwaukeeans). I admire those who braved the sloppy weather to spend the day on the Summerfest grounds or at the Zoo with the sea lions.
As for me, I guess there’s always next summer.
I didn’t mind staying in all weekend (mainly because I’ve been feeling under the weather); I don’t mind being a homebody either – curling up on the sofa to read or watch a movie, staying indoors to cook or catch-up on chores. At the same time, I hate to waste a summer weekend; especially when autumn is fast approaching and winter is coming around the corner. Lets face it people, we just don’t get a ton of hot, sunny days.
Mother Nature’s non-stop rain was not only a huge disappointment for me and my friends, but it raked havoc on the entire state of Wisconsin all weekend.
Over the last few weeks we’ve been experiencing “the dog days of summer,” so the whole state desperately needed the wet weather… but certainly not this much.
