There's a saying around here that if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes. Well we've been waiting several days, and not had much sunny warm weather. It's been down below 10°C. (50°F.) at night for too long now. Our tomatoes will never get enough heat to ripen. And it's been raining just when I don't want it!
These were the clouds last night, typical of the gray blowing and on-again off-again rainy weather this week.
The concrete contractors arrived on Monday and dug out the area for our long-delayed patio, and a corner of the driveway. By late Tuesday it was think clay soup from the rain!
It dried enough that they came back Wednesday and laid out the frames, but then the rain returned. The clouds tricked me into thinking it was going to be sunny, but no luck.
But this morning things were looking up, a little warmer, and some blue sky behind the lighter clouds.
And this afternoon the sky was looking downright beautiful, though it was still quite cool. Perfect weather for pouring concrete I thought, but they were finishing other rain-delayed jobs first, so no concrete til Monday now. I just want to get this over with!
