Quick, run outside and look up. The National Weather Service promises party sunny weather for Saturday and a mostly sunny day Sunday. How pathetic is it when you start to count sun — or at least the absence of rain — as entertainment.
Which reminds me a of a true story about my daughter. (Stop me if you’ve heard this. … Too late.) When she was three, one day about this time of year, she looked out the car window and said, “Mommy, what’s that blue stuff up in the sky?”
