Friday the 13th goodies:
Getting to add a story to my 'What's Cooking...' page is always a delight.
I was awake from 3:30ish am listening to a storm, and bailing floodwater from 4:30 am...and very grateful that it stopped before I had to head to work, and that it didn't rain during the workday despite the menacing forecast. And tonight is looking a lot better than earlier forecasted as well, thank God! Neeeeeeeed sleeeeeeep...
Finally, after all the infernal rain this summer, I finally got to see a bit of a rainbow this evening--my first for 2010...in August!
Today, at last, was payday, so my four weeks of trying to live off one paycheck (since the 'extra' paycheck in July is for my trip) are at an end. Whew!
The concept of so much rain during summer seems a bit odd to me, considering how dry the season is here. I hope that the rain stays away for a while. Will it be ok while you are on holiday?
Lovely to hear about the rainbow! You need some kind of treat after surviving the downpour.
Yes, I was having fun showing a coworker how 'boring' the Sacramento forecast is in the summer: sunny, sunny, sunny, sunny...the variation was just the daily high temp! Would be nice to live somewhere where one can make outdoor plans more than a couple days in advance and not fear being rained upon! (My new boss plays baseball Tuesday evenings, and they've been rained out so often they've got reschedules of reschedules and some idiot made a game continue in a thunderstorm anyway.)
I'm leaving that room cleared out of soakable stuff while I'm gone, though the forecast for this next week is looking quite nice.
