Make it Rain
Our first Kelima event – “Kick Off the Summer, Kick Start Kelima!” – is all set for tomorrow. The theme was going to be summer – lemonade stands, watermelon, bubbles, water toys. We’ve planned for the guests, the food, the drinks, the entertainment, the activities, the presentation…
What we didn’t plan for, however, was the rain. When was the last time it rained in June?! Who could have known. The forecast for tomorrow afternoon is 51-69 degrees, with “a couple of thunderstorms”:
- Max UV Index: 6 (high)
- Thunderstorm Probability: 40%
- Amount of Precipitation: 0.13 in
- Amount of Rain: 0.13 in
- Amount of Snow: 0.0 in
- Amount of Ice: 0.00 in
- Hours of Precipitation: 3 hrs
- Hours of Rain: 3 hrs
After a few hours of denial and panic, we’ve collected ourselves. Rain is a blessing, and considered a fortuitous omen across many cultures and societies. We need rain.
What would a 3 year old do? Run outside, stomp in the largest puddle, search for worms, catch raindrops, and have FUN. Considering half our guests will be 5 and under, we grownups are just going to roll with it and have fun too. Warm hot chocolate stands, warm popcorn, and rainy day games.
Bring your rainboots, bring the rain!
