It’s raining. Again. It’s been raining for a few days now, and it will likely be raining for many, many days to come. In case you’ve ever wondered, there is indeed a very good reason why I chose to call my blog Raincity Librarian. My hometown of Vancouver, Canada is indeed a rainy, rainy city. Last October, for example, it rained 29 out of 31 days. We broke a record! But we weren’t satisfied by that, oh no. In November it went on to rain for another 25 days. We had FIVE DAYS without rain in TWO MONTHS.
In other words, I live in a rainy climate.
You’d think that after 30 years in this rainy city (2017 marks the 30th anniversary of my family’s move from Ontario to British Columbia!) I’d be used to the rain.
But I’m not.
Not. At. All.
I’m afraid I have no words of wit or wisdom with which to honour Poetry Month this week, but please enjoy this short snippet of rain-themed poetry. Happy Friday, may your weekend be less soggy than mine is likely to be!
