Dear Mother Nature

Mammoth puddle in our lane

Ok, ok, enough already. We get it. You’re capable of some pretty awesome displays: hurricanes, tornados, torrential downpours, high-speed winds, polar vortexes. But the thing is, we’re tired. On this side of the pond, we’ve had it up to our knees in water–some literally, some figuratively–many have lost houses, businesses, cars, animals. On the other side of the pond, my family and friends are bracing themselves for yet another frigid blast of cold and snow. California–poor California–is desperate for rain, so how about you send ours over there? After all, we had twice the normal rainfall in January, and February promises to be just as rainy. We don’t need it, they do–so how about it?

We’re done with weather extremes. So please, pretty please, can you try something new? Like–sunshine? Rain for those who need it, and clear skies for those who don’t? A lot of us just can’t take any more. I’m sure you understand.

And, if possible, could you maybe plan on giving us some nice warm weather come summer? I hope that’s not too much to ask. And thanks.

Yours,

Expatrimummy

PS: Even our cat is afraid.

Scooter has taken to hanging out under an umbrella, even in the house.
