The Olympic Games opening ceremony needs rain. Frankly, the strange idea of a few drops is the brainstorm of the director Danny Boyle and he has fake rain for the Olympics opening ceremony on standby just in case the clouds don’t come and the rain doesn’t happen. On Tuesday the extended forecast for the London area doesn’t include rain and clouds, but the fans are still grumbling at the idea of fake rain
While Donny Boyle wants rain, it appears nobody else does. The fans would prefer to sit in the warm, dry seats for the outdoor venues and then there are the athletes. Who wants to run in the rain or play in the rain? Not very many athletes will volunteer for that.
Of course the biggest weather issue is if it is cold, the ladies won’t be wearing their bikinis at the volleyball games and instead will have on shirts. This means that the extra cash put on the ladies volleyball games would be a waste of money.
The extended forecast released on Tuesday for the London area includes mostly cloudy skies for the entire London Olympics. Rain is not expected over the first weekend, as it is supposed to be the hottest in London that it has been all year. Comparing the weather to Hawaii, the fans are looking at clear skies with plenty of sun, but no tropical drinks. Rain could come during the second week of competition, but that is so far away and after the ladies volleyball matches, that it doesn’t seem to matter.
The 2012 Olympics start on July 27, 2012.
