Wet Wednesday

The weather forecast wasn’t good, and it started to rain around here about 11:00 a.m. It wasn’t that heavy (I did go out for lunch) but in the afternoon, that all changed. It rained hard, with a strong wind. Sometimes the rain on the office roof drowned out conversation!

Luckily, it died down about 4:30 p.m. and I only had to use the wipers on the way home when somebody kicked up some spray (there was standing water everywhere).

I was going to go out and check the rain gauge, but the rain picked up just after I pulled in the garage (thank you, Lord!) So, I checked it with my bird-watching binoculars.  There was over 1 1/2-inches of rain in it!

As you know, I wasn’t here for the big rain event last month. But they had pictures today on the evening news showing expressway after expressway flooded. Seeing what a quick one and a half inches of rain can do, I’m glad I missed that five inches of rain!!!

I started the Wednesday night wash and then hauled some things into the attic, starting with my suitcase. I’ve let them build up in the office and they were getting out of hand.

I did the Wednesday wash.

I warmed up some taco meat and the refried beans, assembled two tacos and ate a filling (if somewhat burpy) dinner.

I watched “Death Proof” again and remembered seeing it in the movie theater. Good times, man, good times…
