Every Sunday I sit down and write a letter to my 100 year old mother. There isn’t always a lot to write about because there isn’t a lot going on around here, so I often end up with a paragraph mentioning what our weather is doing somewhere in the letter. Strangely, for weeks and weeks now it seems like every time I mention the weather, I have to report that it is either raining or showering. Well that is not the case today, because today it is neither showering or raining--instead it is snowing. (It did rain hard all night however, then slowly turned into snow around 6:30 AM.)
I find it strange how often precipitation does seem to always occur on the same day of the week. In the summer of 2020, when we began to have our music jam outside on the McBride Train Station porch, it seemed to rain or shower every Tuesday, the night of our Jam. Fortunately, his summer on our outside Jam, it seemed to be sunny and warm every Tuesday, which was a welcome change.
