Picture of the Week – Rain and More Rain

Sparks Street, Flooded, Ottawa, June 2012

When it rains in Ottawa, it pours. And it has been pouring for almost a week non-stop now—blah weather, trust me. Umbrellas aren’t terribly helpful because it’s flooded everywhere, and the wind is often too strong to hold the umbrella in the first place.

I know some rain is good—the grass and the crops are so green at the Experimental Farm right now, it’s lovely. Some rain washes the streets as well, and it brings the temperatures down a bit.

But this is too much. I want the sun back! Otherwise, I feel like I’m in rainy Brittany.
