It's Saturday and It's Raining . . . Again

Last week one of my students said, "It rains every weekend" and I pedantically pointed out how irrational her logic was-- how the weather does not possess consciousness and can't possibly be aware of what day of the week it is-- although it is Saturday and it's raining again, and we have a soccer game and I need to build a new gate for our fence and my wife is getting soaked at a bike rodeo and so my evidence may be anecdotal and also suspect to confirmation bias, but I'm starting to believe her.

What is a bike rodeo?

It's where everyone rides a bicycle until someone falls off?

i'm not sure exactly, but there are raffles and police and helmets and lots of bikes . . . but it got rained out after an hour yesterday

I want to ride my bicycle until I fall off AND win some raffles. Cool!
