You only had to ask….

Yes, apparently so.  "Rain, rain, go away," I said.  And the next day, this: Blossom!  Blue skies!  Just like in the 'real' blogs - you know, the ones written by people who don't spend the first ten minutes at work every day trying to blow-dry their legs using the hand dryer in the Ladies'.

Rain, rain, go away
