Just a few weeks ago, I was lamenting the predictable end of the summer weather in Vancouver as August ticked over to September. Indeed, the first week of September gave us rain and colder temperatures. I was ready to put away the shorts and t-shirts but today I changed my mind. I’m going to attempt to wear shorts until it’s not practical. Now, the threshold of what is “practical” remains to be seen. I know some dudes have very high threshold of “practical” and wear shorts year-round. I already know that is not for me.

I do know, however, that I will wear shorts tomorrow. The high is going to be 18 degrees Celsius, which is far from cold. The only iffy thing is that there’s 43% chance of precipitation tomorrow around noon. That shouldn’t matter since I’ll be already inside at that time. With a 15% chance of precip at 6pm, I feel pretty good about going bare-legged tomorrow.

Of course, I won’t be stupid about though. I’ll bring a hoodie just in case I need it. Also, it being Vancouver, I’ll have an umbrella with me too. Who knows how long this will last? I’ll probably give it up once the torrential rains come, which could be as early as next week.
