There was an interesting article in the Peterborough Examiner on Friday, discussing our history of crappy weather on the Victoria Day long weekend.
For a long weekend that is supposed to signal the start of the "summer" long weekends, the weather has not been very good, very often. Today, here in the Canadian tropics at 43°N, we are having a cool, windy Sunday after a wet Saturday. I can see smoke coming out of the chimney of the house across the street.
Maybe we ought to move the holiday into June?
