Rain, rain, go away... And don't come back!

For those of you that didn't know, Alaska has a rainy season. A monsoon season, if you will. A season where it rains every day for a week solid, gives you a single day of brilliant sunshine and blue skies, and then the torrential rains return. This season is otherwise know as the month of August. It's been that way ever since I first came to Alaska, as well as for as long as Micah can remember (and since he was born here, that's a very long time).

Now, easy question. Is it August?

No. It's July.

What do we usually have in July?


Not this July.

Oh look! The first twelve days of the month... rain... rain... rain... rain... you get the idea. And what do we have to look forward to? Rain... rain... rain... rain... rain... and just for a change of pace... more rain! Oooo! One day of sunshine! And then it's back to rain.

This is getting REALLY annoying! Especially considering that we've been trying to schedule photo sessions and keep having to postpone due to the weather. One session we're about to have to postpone for the THIRD TIME! This kid is going to graduate high school before we have our photo session! (and for the record, he's just a yer old! First birthday session... or at least it was supposed to be!)

Sigh. I just want some sunshine. Please?

I think someone switched the calenders on me. It's really August, right?

Ha. Found ya out!
