To whomever it may concern,

I would like to bring it to the attention of management that it is now the month of JUNE.  I am not sure if anyone in your department has gotten that memo.

It has been raining for 14 days straight (give or take a day) and the sun has only shown it's glorious rays for a total of 4.5 hours during those fourteen days.  The temperature has been in the mid 70's- which is cause for concern- at least for those of us who like to wear shorts.

My legs are pasty white, I have not been able to read a book out on my front porch, no picnics at the park or dinners in the back yard.  The kids are stuck inside playing computer games instead of running around the neighborhood eating drippy popcicles and skinning their knees.  

Please understand that while it has been very nice not to have to worry about watering the lawn, because of the amount of rain we have been receiving, we are unable to even find a moment when it is dry enough to mow it.  It is starting to look like a jungle around here.

I hope that someone who has the authority, would take a moment to turn the faucet off and the heater on.  It wouldn't take too much time or effort, that I can see, but would make a world of difference to those of us who are trying to enjoy some summer weather fun.

I would appreciate a quick response as time is a-wasting.  

Thank you kindly. 

Missing Summer  


  1. Amen Sista! You're so funny! Don't worry next week it will be 100 degrees and we'll all be wondering where the rain went - we can't win.

  2. Boo. Your picture might as well be out my window for the past few days too. Boo.

  3. Hahaha! I love it Becky! I guess the good news is, if you're growing a garden, it's something to be thankful for. I does suck though that you can't play outside for very long without it raining. I'm fair skinned though so I don't really mind that it hasn't been hot. This is my kind of weather....well minus the rain.

  4. So funny! Hope your "little talk" with management is successful!
