Answer me this:
If you checked your online local weather report for the day and it said "Sunny with cloudy periods, 0% probability of precipitation" - you wouldn't think of rain, would you?
Of course not!
But apparently Montreal weather-people were on crack today or were enjoying a joke at our expense because the big fat pregnant clouds rolled in with a vengeance around lunchtime and as we made our way out of the city to go spend "a sunny summer afternoon" in the Eastern Townships, it started to piss with rain! WTF!
I might have ranted about it in the car for a bit. Just a tad.
The clouds followed us east, we got rained on again while visiting with my grandmother (I hadn't seen her in two years... she's 86 now and has quite a bit of alzheimer's) and my mom (who lives in Quebec City but goes to care for my gramma every other week, I hadn't seen her since I got married in early January, mon dieu!) and then the sun burned through the greyness and all was beautiful again.
We stopped by our soon-to-be house and snapped a few pics of the lush green gardens with Vegas' tiny camera - since they turned out fine would you like to see a few?
