If there is any truth to the old "Rain 90 days after a fog" adage, then we are definitely due for a wet Memorial Day.
They tell me today is St. David's Day, the lesser-known Welsh equivalent of St. Patrick's Day. Really, leek and potato soup sounds better right now than corned beef and cabbage. And I've always loved a language that can call beer "cwrw". Who needs those pesky vowels anyway?
