Okay so I know that I sort of abandoned the Natal Day inspired posts for a few days. Sorry about that. I am currently traveling outside of Canada and believe it or not, I had some last minute
panicking packing that got in the way of my final posts.
When I drove from Montreal to Nova Scotia a few weeks ago, I realized that there is something oddly comforting about the East Coast weather (for me at least). There wasn’t a drop of rain on the entire drive until I crossed the Nova Scotia border. It was definitely an ironic happening but it also felt sort of right that as soon as I saw the flags, it started pouring. I know that I will sound crazy in saying this, but I really do love the gloomy, wet weather that is characteristic of Nova Scotia summers. Obviously consecutive weeks of rain are not my ideal, but it just wouldn’t feel like home if it didn’t look like this some of the time:
However, this might be a little too much:
|Pretty crazy huh? It was a wild thunder storm!|
I know that all of my out-of-province friends will laugh and
mockingly lovingly say, “well Nova Scotia is sooooo beautiful in the fall” which is how most of us compensate for the summer weather out east. Maybe it’s because I only spent five days at home, or maybe it’s because the heat wave in Montreal was not enjoyable for me, but the cooler temperatures and dark skies were a welcome change.
Maybe a little bit strange, but certainly one of the many reasons why I love where I’m from.
PS - In all fairness, we did have a beautiful long weekend. Sunny skies and warm temperatures. See, it’s not all bad..
