Rain rain go away

Why does it always rain when my family comes to visit?

It poured in great sheets of cascading water when mum and dad came last May, so that every where they went they were splashing around in shoes like buckets. Now it may only be sprinkling, but it's freezing cold and sprinkling, which adds a whole new element of awfulness to the rain.

it's hard enough to find motivation to get out of bed in the middle of winter, but when you wake up and can hear the drip dripping of rain outside the bedroom window, getting out of bed suddenly becomes impossible.

I hope my Josie and Nat have an OK day in Kyoto. It can sometimes be very beautiful.
