rain toronto

The rain kind of sucks, but it makes for some fine photos

So it's a pretty miserable day out there, with a cold rain falling since this morning. I actually got soaked on a little coffee run earlier today, which made me a bit more annoyed than it probably should have. So, as a sort of token apology to the rain gods, I thought I'd put together a little photo collection of rain shots in the blogTO Flickr pool.

I'm not sure if they'll make up for getting soaked or for walking around with wet feet, but, hey, they're pretty. Well, most of them at least - I couldn't hep but throw in a few moody ones as well.
