Paddington Bear’s “Singing in the Rain”

At long last, after a record drought in Sacramento, we’re finally getting some rain.

Not rain like the U.K. has gotten rain all winter long, mind you, but at least it’s a start. And on that note, Ruby posted this delightful video of Paddington Bear “Singing in the Rain,” following my post last week about Gap’s Paddington Bear line. Enjoy!

Rain, rain, go away!

You’ve heard that the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain. But this year, it seems that the rain in England stays mainly … well, everywhere.

Last month, the country reported a record heatwave. Now, only a few weeks later, they’re calling it “European monsoon” weather, with hurricane-force winds and heavy downpours.

Experts are already predicting that this weather will continue through June. Summer, it seems, will be postponed until July.
