Summer is over!

We had a wonderful summer. I don’t care what the whiners will say: I don’t remember any rain stopping us from going hiking or swimming, playing outside in the evening or biking around town. But it could not last forever. And now it’s definitely over.

After what seemed like months of sun and warm weather, the sky opened up last night. And today, there is a torrential downpour with a mere 11 degrees. I know people will complain, but it is officially fall now, and there is only two days left in September. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the temperature will go down, and so will the rain. After all, the grass certainly needs a good watering, and if we want snow for the Winter Olympics, we have to start somewhere.

I’m still hoping for a break on Sunday so we can do the last Great Ride of the season. But if it’s not possible, then so be it. I’ll enjoy the warmth of our apartment and the roof over my head. I’ll dig my Gore-Tex pants out of the closet and our son will be glad to finally wear his rubber boots. There is always a silver lining!
