Outdoor activities are all we have at the moment. We know things are starting to open up, but for the foreseeable future, all of the craic will be limited to outdoor settings.
Now deep into the month of May, you'd be hoping that the weather wouldn't be too much of an obstacle to your plans. Even an Irish summer is still a summer, sure it can't be raining the whole time?
Well it seems that every time you open your weather app, all you can see is that we're promised rain. Wet today, wet tomorrow, wet for the rest of the week. You might even see a lightning icon in there to really annoy you.
That's all grand of course, except for the fact that we are being lied to. Every day we are promised rain, and yet it often fails to arrive.
You're sitting there, looking out the window at the sun shining, shaking with anger that we haven't made plans to take advantage of the situation. Today was the perfect example and we would bet it will happen later this week as well.
How does this keep happening? Is it an unreliable app, our notoriously difficult to judge weather, or have we simply been too lazy to click into the hourly updates to see that we have only been promised rain for a small portion of the day?
We put to you a different theory: somebody is hacking our weather apps to keep us from drinking bags of cans.
We have no idea who the culprits are or what their end game is, but what we do know is that they have waged a war on craic.
If people think the weather is going to be shite, parks and canals across the country will be empty, not a can (or bottle if you're posh) in sight.
We definitely haven't overthought this one. It is the only logical explanation for weather predictions being so consistently wrong.
We are through the looking glass here people...
