Montreal Is About To Experience Something For The Very First Time This Year

As someone as obsessed with the weather as I am, I saw something this morning that I haven't so far this year.

A whole week of warm weather. 

I actually had to do a double-take at first. Yep, 7 straight days of sunshine and no rain at all!

After the beautiful sunny weather we've been enjoying for the last 2 days, it was extremely hard to wake up with a smile on my face on a rainy morning like this one.

Luckily I found 3 ways to cheer myself up.

  1. I realized that it's only Friday and I'm stuck at work all day, so I'm not missing out on anything.
  2. The sun is coming out just in time for the weekend and it's not going away anytime soon.
  3. Pants are now optional.

If that still doesn't cheer you up, just stare at this screen-shot from The Weather Network. Admit it, all those yellow sunshines are starting to make you happy.

Think about it, when's the last time you saw a weather report that didn't feature either rain or snow?
