Tourists don't care about rain...

It's going to rain ...and my mammy has not called yet....quite strange....
I don't know, but it's very common for sicilian mammies to be worried about rain...
It's true, in Sicily we usually have less than 50 rainy days per year, BUT, this year things are changing. WE already have the rain we usually have for an whole winter...and my mammy's calls have increased..
why? It's 16 years since I started to work as a tourist guide....and it's 16 years since my mammy calls me and asks me: "Lucia have you to work..with all this rain??" - " Si mom, of course, tourists don't care about rain and they have already paid travel agent in advance..bla bla bla.."- " Sure, at least..copriti!!!!"
That's always the dialouge on the phone early morning when it's raining.......
Strange??? maybe not....here rain  almost seems stops daily routine......maybe beacuse we are not so used to it and we don't do anything to be..

.....it has not rained.....the weather forecast I watched early this mkorning were wrong..so mom has not called me , at least, not to tell me "copriti!!"...
