Default Sunshine.... clear sky.... I had almost forgot....

It'* been 21 days of straight rain here in Nova Scotia.
...... it has rained the past 10 weekends straight....
We haven't had a semi clear/sunny day in over 24 days....

Finally today... the streak ended.... it'* sunny and almost 20c outside.....
... so nice... everyone is instantly in a better mood....

The outlook for the next 5 days is sunshine all the way....
Should be perfect for racing on Sat/Sun....

It'* about damn time summer made it to Nova Scotia....

We've been dealing with about the same thing here in central Minnesota too. If it doesn't rain today (and it looks like it'* going to) it'll have rained pretty much every day for the past 2 weeks (even if it was just a 10 minute down-pour yesterday).
Sunday, Monday and today have been patchy clouds, but we've had good outbursts most of Sunday morning with slight clearing in the evening, and then mostly cloudy yesterday and a good heavy drenching in the mid-afternoon.
They have been forecasting "NICE SUNNY AND 70*+ 3-4 days a week for the past month, but we have only had 70* like 4 days and no 80* days at all in May -first time since 1983!!!!

I just hope June turns a new leaf weather-wise.

We had a pretty good weekend in The Cities. Grilled every day, went for a bike ride, my car didn't blow up...

Coulda been a touch warmer to suit me, but definitely nothing to complain about...

a unusual Noreaster passed by us to top off a week or so of rain
a lot of downed trees and coastal floods . rock and sand everywhere.
in other words Yup it has sucked around here as well. It was nice to see sun shine yesterday even if it was only for a few hours.

He'* from Thurllo (sp?) area, nice guy about 26ish.
