Flooded Friday

It doesn't look quite this bad today, but it's not far off -- at least bad enough to keep me sitting still for a little while. And I guess I'd better get used to it. Seems like we're in for rain ALL weekend. Lovely.

I guess I shouldn't complain too much. I could always be in Galveston.

The thunder that awakened me about 4:45 brought heavy rain with it shortly thereafter. It POURED for about an hour, flooding my roadway and from what the news is showing, several streets between here and work. So I'm in no particular hurry to head out even though it's stopped now.

Between the thunder, Ozzie demanding to be let up because of it, Toby being woke up by it, and then the mother, I never went back to sleep. So I'm going on less than five hours. Not a pretty scene. Five is about my limit to function coherently. And joy of joys, I've got a really full plate today.

It should be a fun day. Happy Friday!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! It's been soooo long since I've seen the Joan Fontaine version, I'll have to check it out at the library again. :-) Nothing beats the book, though, that's for sure!

I just checked out Joan Fontaine's autobiography at the library... I'm looking forward to reading it!

SITTING STILL???? GUFFAW! Rolling on the FLOOR over here! YOU? PUH-LEASE! I think we all know you a litttttle better than this, my dear!

Oh, thanks for the belly laugh! Sitting still, indeed.

I can't believe how much rain you've gotten over the months that I've been reading you! Is your area always this rainy?

Lindsey -- Yes, I'm pretty fond of the written word and tend to skew its direction. You'll have to tell me how the autobio is. May have to check it out!

Ann -- It's true, Ann. I really DID sit still and put off leaving for work. Really. No, reaaaaaally.

V -- We had a rainy June and part of July the year before last I think. But this year, we've been regularly drenched since April. It's pretty unusual.
