Okay . . . listen here, Mother Nature, we have to have a talk. I’m getting older and I cannot take stress like I used to.
We have a festival that is supposed to begin on Wednesday and we need good weather tomorrow to set up and good weather through the week and weekend so that people can enjoy themselves.
Earlier, the forecast called for a few days of rain. Now, they are saying that we will be cool except for Thursday when it will get to the humid 90’s and then go down again.
One model says rain. Another forecast model says cloudy, hot, cool, sunny, and everything imaginable in between.
Please, please, please make up your mind. And, when you make up your mind, please make the weather favorable. That is all that I ask until December 31st. Yes, Mother Nature, you heard me. I won’t bother you until December 31st. On that day, all I can say is the weather had better be good enough for my plane to take off and whisk me to Orlando for my annual Disney vacation.
Don’t be a cruel Mother, Mama Nature. I can’t take it anymore!
P.S. Please do something about the allergy counts. My head wants to explode. That is all…
