The weather forecasters sure were off today. We had traveled 450km/280mi yesterday to celebrate our twin daughters' birthdays, and a barbecue had been planned for today. However, a light drizzle had already changed our plans from a back yard event to an indoor one. The forecasters had predicted that a light rain in the morning would give way to sunny skies by early afternoon. I hope they didn't buy lottery tickets this weekend because were they wrong ! By mid-afternoon the light drizzle had given way to a steady downpour.
But I digress. I did manage to produce a nice batch of barbecued hamburgers before the downpour really got underway. While everyone was arriving, at our family's usual staggered times, I had done my inspection of the flower gardens (which we had created last year from a barren and quite muddy back yard). I noticed several spider's webs with droplets of drizzle suspended in them. And so, while the weather forecasters may have delivered lemons, the weather actually produced 'lemonade'.
