60 or 80?

Does it even matter? Our plan for the three-day weekend was to head to our camper, enjoy playing in the lake, use the new kayaks, sit by the campfire, etc.

But it rained. And rained some more. It rained so much we didn't even go yesterday. Even when it wasn't raining, it looked like rain. It was cloudy and cool. Not great camping weather.

So we stayed home yesterday. Watched some good DVD's. Took a nap. Took the kids out for dinner. So not what we had planned but not a bad day.

But today we planned to get up and get right down there and make the best of the two days left in the long weekend.

When we woke up, it was raining. The weather channel says an 80% chance of rain and thundershowers today. Going online it says there is a 60% chance of rain and thunderstorms. Who is right? And does it matter? Do either of those numbers sound like the forecast that would beckon you to put on your thong and jump in the water? How about building a fire and roasting some marshmallows? Hard to keep a fire blazing in a downpour.

Do we go camping? Or do I break out that new book and spend an afternoon reading and relaxing? Either way will be fun. But seriously...can we have a bit of sun sometime this weekend!?!


Note: To relieve those chills you've been having since paragraph #5, I don't really wear a thong swimsuit. So you don't have to cover your eyes and keep the kids inside. I do have a new swimsuit with a very cool Hawaiian print, though. :)

The book. Definitely the book, while wearing your Hawaiian print lava lava and perhaps roasting marshmallows over the kitchen stove. (Assuming it's not electric.)

And think of the megabucks you're saving on gas.

It never clears up here until AFTER the 4th. It's just a tradition, there's nothing we can do about it.

Enjoy your book.

Oh thank god for that addendum.

Now I must go and mop up my spilt tea.

Looks like fun. My gandson thinks you bowl with a WII. not a ball.

I'll trade you heat and drought for just a little bit of your cool rain. Seriously.
