Last night both Jeff and I had to go downtown for two different purposes, but basically the same timing, so we drove down together. I dropped him off for his thing, and I proceeded to go to my thing. When it was time to come home around 11:00 it was raining and lighteninging (what is the present participle of the verb “to lightening?”) hard. As I was driving home in the pouring rain I was driving like a little old lady (no offense to all of the little old ladies that are reading this). My shoulders were hunched over as I peered through the rain to try make out the lines on the road. So I am straining to see, when suddenly brilliant lightening flashes, blinding me. I didn’t care much for the sensation, and was VERY glad to get home.
I don’t know about you, but I am just about DONE with all this rain. I checked out yahoo weather, and it looks like we will finally get several days in a row with sunshine. I can’t wait! (But I guess I’ll have to.)
Our back yard is a mud pit.
I have a rain bucket to collect the rain now to water my garden, but I haven’t really needed to use it much, and it is currently completely full, so now all of this rain is just wasted.
