Spring Showers

So, it’s been raining…again! Sigh! It hasn’t been cold but the muggy heat is sort of annoying because I keep looking outside and overdressing based on what it looks like and then being too hot when I go outside. And you know that humidity that often precedes a rainstorm? It’s like there is this build up which comes to a head with a wild rainstorm and the rainstorm is a release of all the atmospheric pressure (get your mind outta the gutter!), well the rain we’ve been getting is a lot more like putting on a damp pair of pants that are still a little warm from the dryer. No release of pressure, no wild rainstorm, no change in humidity, just a half-hearted attempt to increase it. Nice! Oh, Vancouver, why do you tease us so? Who do you raise our hopes of warmth and sun with two or three beautiful days and then dash them back into the constant, sleep-walking drizzle and tepid rain?

Summer in Pemberton 2011

I took these last year, before I had a blog but I really love these pictures. They were taken at a friend’s wedding a couple weeks before we got married and the memory is suffused with so much excitement and love and such anticipation. I’ll put more wedding pics on here later on but I thought these were appropriate because this is the kind of weather we’ve been having here in Deep Cove, BC. It is such a relief to finally see some unrelentingly sunny days!
