Good afternoon, friends! I hope everyone gets a change to enjoy the nice day outside. It is a perfect day for gardening. Not too hot and not too cold. Break out the lemonade and dig in. Just be ready to head indoors on a moment’s notice if you don’t like playing in the rain.
We have it good here, ya know. Real good. If we lived in Vancouver we would be dealing with so much rain all the time. Granted they don’t have a harsh winter. But rain…all the time? Ugh. Calgary and Edmonton are at the mercy of whatever comes over the mountains. Toronto…well…is Toronto. ’nuff said? I don’t know what the climate is like in Montreal. I spent a few weekends there one summer. It was nice. The Maritimes get a potpourri of weather thrown at them all the time.
We have good seasons here. The winter is cold, yes. But it is dry and we can play. The springs are very wet and chilly. But they do clean up the city from the whitish brown it becomes. Fall is beautiful and cool. Some of our most stable and nicest weather is in the fall. Granted that’s not how it was twenty years ago. Things have changed a lot here, climate wise. Summers here are fabulous. Lately people have been complaining a lot about how cheated they are. “It’s sunny all week and rains all weekend” “What a ripoff!” “This sucks”. Frankly I am sick of it.
How arrogant are we that we feel Mother Nature owes us ANYTHING? We invented the work week. We invented weekends. Who are we to think Nature should follow OUR schedules? It rains when it needs to. It snows when it should. Tornadoes, hurricanes, monsoons, thunderstorms, blizzards all happen because the forces of Nature work that way. I am sorry to inform the whiners that no matter how much you complain about the weather, there is NOTHING you can do to change it. All you can do it enjoy the diversity of Natures weather or sit inside and mope.
Enjoy all the good we have here in Manitoba. No matter the weather there is lots to see and do. We have a host of friendly folks and great events. Get out. Enjoy them.
Remember, if you have Green or community events planned post it in the events calendar and we’ll add it to our events calendar.
Have a great weekend!
