I’m back, I’m back. I have a few posts that’ll be put up in the next few days, but for the moment, we have a pressing issue to discuss.
It’s going to rain … for more than a day. For more than three days for that matter. And the icing on the cake? It’s going to rain on a Saturday. This is blasphemy; this is madness … this … is … Los Angeles? I guess so.
I do admit, we have all been extremely spoiled for the last six weeks, and all good things must come to and end. In all seriousness, it was just a matter of time.
But so I’ve found, there is a bright side here. According to Holly, Administrative Assistant at the Pendleton Center, it’s good to have a few days of straight rain. In the past, when LA has been on a dry spell for weeks on end, fires have popped up, thus ruining the plans of SoCal residents, and Ithaca students. So putting it in perspective, a few days of harmless rain is far from some more dangerous scenarios.
And come to think of it, there’s another bright side here. Having a rainy day during the weekend will actually force us to do something indoors. Because let’s be honest, we’d be perfectly content spending every single weekend outside.
All in all, I think it comes down to this: karma. I’ve taken plenty of low blows at our friends and family back in Ithaca having to endure freezing temperatures, snow and ice, and now it’s our turn for some bad weather. But hey, it’s no biggie. We’re still on vacation.
