I know that it must be a special day today because when i woke up I realized that it was not raining. Now I know what a lot of you are thinking—-it could be snow! While many of you who are reading this are digging out from the cold blast that has been pounding the midwest for weeks I have begun feeling somewhat like a mushroom! The wet season is most definitley upon us and now I understand why some of these folks have the big SUV’s with the snorkles on them! Our little red Camry is just not going to be able to negotiate the flooded streets well enough to get Chris where he needs to go somedays I am afraid!
The wet season is simply a fact of life here and I just have to figure out how to live with it! I feel totally unprepared for any kind of bad weather though and on my list of things to get is another torch (flashlight), batteries, more candles and perhaps more bottle water. We are to get another huge king tide in the next week and chances are that means storms and electricity going out again. The people that live here are so much more laid back about flooded streets and highways than I am———I just don’t understand how you can get places if the water is way up over the road! And I am certainly not savvy enough about driving around here to know alternate routes but I guess the longer you live here the more “informed” you get.
But for the moment there is no rain and we actually slept with the windows open and no air con on for the first time in a long time! Today will be a good day—even if I don’t see the sun ! As long as i can enjoy a few hours of no rain I will feel somewhat human again!
