Soggy Monday Moaning
It's raining here. Pouring. Again. Still. Water races down the street in front of my house, spraying high as the cars splash through. I expect to see boats launched on the flooded side streets.
The flash flood warning symbol has become a permanent fixture in the lower right corner of our TV screen. At least three family members have had water problems at home - basement, windows, and/or roofs. People in the area are starting to Google plans for an arc.
My poor dog sits with her legs crossed, trying to put off her next trip outside. She's not big on dancing (or peeing) in the rain.
In fact, Gene Kelly would be loving this weather. The rest of us - not so much.
But this could be a good thing. I'm still behind in all things writing (crit group, on line class, blogs, and my WIP) - maybe the rain will keep me at my computer and I can get something done.
So, how are things in your neck of the woods?
I'm currently enjoying: Murder on the Mind by L.L. Bartlett
Groaner of the Day: A software engineer tests new programs by seeing if they're simple enough for his computer-challenged brother to use.
This is known as the "Brother-can-use paradigm".
(Bet you have to say this one out loud a couple times to get it.)
