Southwestern BC is a lovely piece of earth but it does rain a lot. Well, duh, this IS a rainforest, even if we can't always see much forest. It was supposed to rain all weekend AND all week which is pretty depressing. On Friday I had to walk to the dojo because the car's on the fritz and I got good and wet on my way home, even though, like Wong Fei Hung, I always carry my umbrella. Plus it was frigging cold.
So this morning I got up to lovely sunshine! And it was pretty decent all day; not a drop of rain in sight. This gave me such a lift I was able to keep busy and stay away from boredom eating. The forecast has changed as well, and for tomorrow it's now supposed to be sunny and cloudy, NO RAIN! It's still supposed to rain on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but I'm optimistic that may change. Life's good!
I forgot to mention the cherry blossoms. In some places it's like a thick pink carpet. I do have to make sure that they don't clog the storm drain, but they are sure beautiful, and only for such a short time each year I might as well enjoy them.
