It is currently 13 C at Edmonton Blatchford weather station with 14 km/h winds from the east.

Today is one of those days when it would be nice to just nap all day. The soothing patter of raindrops and the cloudy sky just lend themselves to curling up in bed with a good book and hiding from the day.

I was especially thankful that when I got up this morning it wasn’t raining when I had to take the puppy outside. Since then it has really started to rain.

It also feels a bit cold today. I’ve already put on socks and maybe I need a sweater to keep me warm.

These are all very good reasons not to get out of bed today. is there someone with me?
