Oh, well - at least we can look forward to mowing the grass twice a week while pushing our way through clouds of mosquitoes.

It may be a great idea to save the Metrodome and paint a blue sky with two or three clouds on the inside of the roof and with a spotlight shining down as a fake sun. Our already approved "Scandinavian Shipwreck" design with its clear ceiling will provide the fans with the opportunity to hope (pray?) for the following: Sep has 10 days with sun, Oct has 10 days with sun, Nov has 5 days with sun (ouch), Dec has 6 days with sun (OUCH), Jan has 8 days with sun (but no games will be played there), and Feb has 8 days with sun (again, no games will be played there). The definition of "with sun," according to the official meteorologist recordkeepers, is no more than 30% clouds! So at best that would mean sun, sun-blocked, sun, sun-blocked, repeat, repeat.

Having such a cool and soggy start, I'm hoping that once the "summer" weather gets here, it'll last longer into the fall. It looks like Mother Nature is getting payback for last year. Rats.

"There's no such thing as bad weather; just different kinds of good weather." Will Rogers? Mark Twain?
