The weather is slightly less grey and drizzly today, but still a cloud of mist wraps itself around the town of Whitehorse; bathing everything in a cool grey light. As I share phone conversations with our office, back on Vancouver Island, I am sent words of "brilliantly cloudless blue skies" and "the hottest weather we've seen yet, at least 30 degrees!" I am sensing that I may have picked the wrong weather period to make me venture North!
Still, we attempt to convince ourselves that the rain and fog really does add certain impressiveness to the overall atmosphere of the place and that it wouldn't really be all that great to work in hot weather anyway...
I spent a couple of hours today, tucked into a corner of "Baked Café" writing out pieces of this blog. My Dad is focused on the computer and so I thought I'd take a breather and a change of atmosphere.
I watch as people look up from their lattes, cappuccinos and mochas; startled by the sudden noise of weather letting loose outside. The skies have well and truly opened themselves now and the streets quickly become void of people as everyone runs for cover. Rain splashes onto the lime green fabric umbrellas outside, designed for weather protection, but now holding little competition against the elements.
Another afternoon of organization work, processing the complicated details of this endeavour; I so admire the people who do this day in and day out, it is indeed a massive task and great accomplishment when things go smoothly and as planned.
