God Damnit Rain, Seriously?

Tonight is the Night at the Museums event. And this is all over the news: “A chance of showers and thunderstorms … mainly this afternoon. Some thunderstorms may produce damaging winds … heavy rainfall and frequent lightning this afternoon.”

You should hear them go on about the lightning, which, by the way, I pronounced and misspelled as lightening for many many years, like we were all getting our hair done whenever it stormed. Danger, danger, danger, they’re all crying. (Images of John Oliver dancing in his chair just went through my mind.) I went to this last year and had a lot of fun. You’ve got four hours to run from museum to museum, and it’s quite a challenge, even with out freaking Armageddon going on around you. I planned to make it to all the museums I missed last year. Now, I don’t know. We shall see.
