Singing in the Rain!

This summer has been one of the hottest and driest on record – a fact that quite frankly, I’ve been reveling in.  Although I’m not a fan of humidity (and really, who is?), I love the heat and will never complain about there being too much sun.  I often say that I was born in the wrong country – Canada is not exactly a tropical locale.

However, even I finally had to admit that we need a bit of rain after my trip up North for my cousin’s wedding last weekend.  The drive up North is a beautiful one – the views are what postcards are made of.  During this trip, however, the further north we drove, I started to see something that I only ever see during my trip back home in October – foliage.  That’s right, foliage, as in bright orange, yellow and red leaves, at the beginning of August! It actually made me sad to see all these trees with their leaves dying so early because of the lack of rain.

We’ve all been hearing about global warming and bumper crops (I never knew what those were until this summer), but it took actually seeing the physical effects on nature for me to understand just how much we need a bit of rain.

Well, for the past couple of days, we here in Central Ontario, have been seeing just that and I have to say, as much as I would normally be moaning and groaning about having to walk to work in the rain, I love it!  Everything is greener and brighter and seems more alive.  I woke up this morning to, guess what, more rain.  Maybe, just maybe, if it keeps up for a while, and remains a bit more consistent in that we get a day or two each week of rain, we will be spared from sky-rocketing grocery prices at the stores and nature will be able to live on until the cold comes. So far, it seems to be doing just that.
