The rain that is.
I mean what's the big deal?
Well okay, it's like a lot of water, but still, it's just water.
The ole water cycle doing it's thing.
Don't you know.
Well okay, it's doing it's thing in a large way.
As in major flooding.
Remember that rain I was waiting for on Sunday?
Well it arrived, with all the pomp and circumstance that a large rain brings.
I swear I heard a band playing and a twenty one gun salute.
Or maybe that was the thunder and lightning.
Seriously, just as soon as I get the Yet To Be Named(YTBN) all up and ready, the heavens open up like a dam burst upstream!
At least the streets will be clean once I make it to the streets.
Anyways, the poor Cactus Army is getting drenched:
I think during the next lull I'm going to move them under cover.
It's pretty much been non stop since last night and I think the pots be full of water now.
Boy, them cactus are going to be fat!
I mean it's really coming down!
At least it's falling up and down, not that sideways water which usually means trouble.
I mean if the rain is coming at you from sideways, you got more than water to worry about!
Well I sort of do.
Have more to worry about that is.
I got home today, and my poor mailbox was leaking like a sieve!
Boy, I bet the mail person wasn't too happy about that.
I mean I've been meaning to fix it, or make a new mailbox for oh, like a year or so, but now I guess I must, for after the deluge, it doesn't look like it's going to last very long.
The thing is, I can't very well go out and fix it while it's still raining!
Don't you know.
So, I did the next best thing:
I got out the ole staple gun and attached a piece of aluminium sheeting to the top!
Hey, I didn't go to college for nothing.
That fix will probably last until the aluminium oxidizes to dust and the mailbox starts leaking again.
I don't understand how it got so bad.
I mean it's only water from the sky.
