Someone's Got a New Rain Cover

This was the flower an friend gave to me - as you can see, it is all covered in raindrops from the rain I had to drag it through. I, for one, am ready for it to stop and be gorgeous again. Towards that end, I finally finished a project I've been working on for Greg.

His backpack does not have a rain cover attached to it like mine does so while in NYC, I found the perfect waterproof fabric to make him one. I hope the picture isn't too blurry - it's made up of ships! Does anyone else see the humor in having ships on a rain cover?! Am I the only one who finds it funny? Oh well...

I affectionately call my creation the backpack shower cap. The reason I think this will stop the rain is because now that it's completed, the rain will cease forever so that Greg won't have a chance to use it. That's just how things work when it comes to weather! Forget weathermen who are so unpredictable - just prepare for the exact opposite weather you want and you'll end up with what you do want. While I'd love for him to enjoy his new toy, I'd also love for it to stop raining.
Greg happy with his new shipworthy rain cover
