Highly conflicted on today's weather

When you are a plant person and your area is suffering from a drought, you want and hope for a really rainy day, but why today! Once a year the Phactor drags out his Cajun cooking gear and out under our big trees, he whips up a big pot of fish soup for a bunch of friends, and now it looks like the hoped for rainy day has come on fish soup day. Thus the emotional conflict, the-rain-very-much-wanted-but-just-not-today conflict, after all what would it hurt if it rained on Monday or Tuesday when classes occupy me all day? So the soup preparations will continue, and no one will complain about the rain, certainly not the plants, but the annoyance remains.

Happy birthday, Phactor! Keep up the good work!

Thank you Dr. Chips. Weather today managed to be miserable without producing any useful amounts of precipitation, so terribly annoying. It was a very good, although probably not great, batch of fish soup (the 29th). For you there's always a bowl, no soup, just a bowl, but it's the thought that counts!

Isn't that always the way! It caught me this year I had been wishing for rain for my veggie patch which didn't come until we arrange a day out to a theme park for my sons birthday and it poured it down! We all got soaking wet but on the bright side we didn't have to queue long for the rides!
Mmmm fish soup sounds yummy.
