It Doesn't Look Like Summer Yet

It's Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer. Yet even though the calendar says May for two more days before changing over to June on Wednesday, there have been very few signs of summer. There have been a few warm days this month, but rain has occurred throughout May probably making many people forget that summer is almost here. Sure they know, what with kids almost out of school and with stores having pools, pool toys, and other summer-related supplies on display (saw a bunch of these things at Kmart and Target recently). Summer doesn't officially begin until around June 21, so maybe Mother Nature's waiting till that exact date.

To see rain in June in my neck of the woods is nothing unusual. Six years ago, it rained in June, so much so the rain leaked through the roof of the store where I was working then. And would you believe it also rained at least one day each in July and August that year also? Every month then in fact. And last night's 11PM news teaser on my NBC station said there was more rain forecast for this week. I missed the actual newscast, unfortunately, so I did not hear the whole story. I'm now wondering what they will say on the news tonight about this week's weather.

Right now there's no sun outside and there's no telling how the rest of the day will be.
