Cottage Cheese

So this past weekend I went up to my friends' cottage. We drove up on a nice sunny morning where I was extremely hungover to discover that the longer we drove the darker it got outside. When the raining started it was light at first but then eventually descended into a near-torrent but then subsided enough when we had to bring our stuff inside that we only got marginally wet. So we spent the majority of Saturday inside playing boardgames. We started playing a zombie card game that nearly broke many friendships but in the end it was all good fun and no one ever wants to play the game again. But at least we ate very well the whole time.
The next day we were greeted by slightly sunny skies and we decided to take a trip down to the beach. Once upon the beach we could see dark clouds rolling in and we got stuck outside when the rain came. So a mad dash to the car was in order. On the drive home the rain was so bad it was like the clouds were vomiting all over us instead of crying. It was actually insane. We learned later that there was a tornado in a town not too far from where we were. Holy crazy weather batman. But we survived the storm and spent the rest of the time indoors except to barbecue because that is apparently what Canadians do. Again, we ate very well (breakfast was also stellar, in case I didn't mention it).
Then it was time to drive home where my chauffeur and I saw a nearly perfect, full rainbow (what does it mean?).
Good trip, sun would only have ruined it.
