Friday’s weather is a reflection of our collective mood after that Game 5 loss.

While I do still think there’s hope for an Oilers victory in Round 2, the next few days are going to be pretty gloomy. Friday has a 30 per cent chance of showers throughout the day, with winds climbing up to 50 km/h and a high of 10 C. Those winds and showers will continue overnight and into Saturday, which will have a high of 11 C and similarly intense 50 km/h winds. The rain and wind will pour down on us all the way through the long weekend, only relenting on Tuesday when we’ll finally see a little sunlight between the clouds.
