I know weather is a boring, safe topic, but it is absolute insanity here.
It’s like the park itself as a whole resides within a desert, a forest, a mountain range, a rain forest, and a swamp. Regardless of what the forecast says, one minute it can be sunny and beautiful and the next it can thunderstorm – and sometimes it does both of those things at the same time.
This morning at 8 a.m., it was warm and mildly breezy. When I pulled into Sylvan Lake at about 9:30 a.m., it was downright hot. Then, at noon, some clouds rolled in and before I knew it, there was thunder booming in the air around me as I walked back to the office from lunch.
And speaking of booming, there has been lightning in the sky every single night. It hasn’t even rained that much and the sky has been clear of clouds, but there has still been lightning that cracks across the sky periodically.
It’s strange and apocalyptic and I don’t like it one bit.
I went into my downstairs office with no windows not that long ago, but I’m sure the weather has changed since last I looked. For all I know it could be raining Care Bears out there.
