To be quite honest, I am a little bit confused.
I should be wearing sandals right now, but I am wearing boots. And long-sleeve sweaters.
Don’t believe a thing, if someone is trying to tell you that it never rains in California. It actually does rain quite a bit in the winter (especially in Northern California), but the rain – and hail, mind you! – that we’ve been enduring for the past, oh, only four days is anything but to be expected. It’s the middle of May, for Peet’s sake!
I think it’s obvious: the weather is officially getting more and more crazy. I must admit though, I am pretty relieved that we’re not dealing with tornadoes or floods like other parts of the country.
Considering the fact that most of the summer will be unbearably hot here in the Central Valley, I should probably shut my piehole right now and be thankful for the fact that we get a few more days with lower temperatures. In fact, I can’t really say that I did not not enjoy curling up on the couch under a blanket yesterday after work sipping
a three big cups of tea (even though it made me use the bathroom twice last night) while watching a movie to wind down. I even turned on the heater for a little bit and didn’t feel one bit bad about it.
I did do one good deed yesterday when this little duck family was wandering around in the middle of street in front of our apartment. The little one in the left corner was visibly limping and had a hard time keeping up with the rest of his siblings.
So I shooed them over to the sidewalk, only to realize that the curb was too high for the ducklings to jump up on. The puddle in the ditch was so deep that the little ones actually had to swim, instead of just waddle through it. I ushered them along to the next street corner (making sure that they didn’t fall into the stormwater sewer) and helped them to cross yet another busy street. My, what a dangerous ordeal!
I am really hoping that they made it back to the park (three blocks away) that I think they came from.
How’s the weather been in your neck of the woods?
