A look at today’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.

It’s been one heck of a ride the last couple of weeks. So gloomy and muggy and rainy and soggy and other words that describe fear.

But now, yes now, today we wake up to blue skies and a little bit of clouds but with a perfect yellow punctuation to give us that energy boost to complain that we still have to go to work on a day like today.

Seeing that giant ball of raging fire in the sky gives us that renewed feeling of we can do anything.

We can breathe. We can run. We can bike. We can drive. We can not wear underwear if we don’t want to.

It is odd that just seeing something that not only warms our hearts but our actual skin and the streets that we throw our trash on can make us feel this way.

Truth be told we need it, we here in Edmonton get enough grey and dark during the winter we deserve to be happy and have sun dammit it’s not like we get spoiled in the winter with chinooks like that other city that we dare not speak its name.

Well instead of going on and on about things we don’t like I’m going to just say I’m glad the sun showed up and this has been fun. On Monday I think Trevor will be back doing the weather stories so I just wanted to say I’m wearing my cat socks right now.

Now go out there and be the best you today.

If you scrolled down this far then you get to know that I watched Stranger Things season 3 and can’t get the Neverending Story song stuck in my head all week. Life is good.
