It sure looks like I will be putting the walking on hold and hunkering down in the house for a few more days after hearing what Mother Nature has in store for us. Yesterday, my favorite weatherman, Paul Gross, proclaimed “Rain reigns” and he sure was not exaggerating. I’ve been listening to the news and watching some videos of vehicles floating in eight feet or more of water. I think I’ve counted at least a dozen separate waves of rain since I got up this morning, though I just checked at Wunderground, and we’ve received only 1.3 inches so far.
I’m a little bummed out by this spate of rainy days, as my boss is headed to the UP for a long weekend of leaf-peepin’ and R&R, while, I am sure that the only thing I will be peepin’ at will be raindrops when I gaze out the window. I guess it will be a time to catch up on long-neglected household chores.
Here is another picture from one of the local chalk artists. You’ll see the ark at the side of the house – good planning, eh? But the sun is not correct because all I see are cats and dogs falling out of the sky.
