This old house …


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.

About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

    Good picture. We do need the rain, the grass is turning green. When you do start to walk again please watch for high water and fallen power lines.

      Thanks Marge – glad you liked it … still have a couple more to use. Thanks for the warning about the power lines and high water. That wind yesterday was pretty powerful … there were power outages this morning that I heard about on the news.

    I thought it was clever too Ann Marie – I wish I could take credit for it, but it was Paul Gross … he is my favorite weatherman as he is always right on the money. Pouring right now as I write this reply to you and supposed to now rain Monday as well. I have a few more chalk art drawings – will try to sneak one more in, or save til next year. Did you walk today? They said it was drizzling, but when I went out to run the car around 8:00 a.m., it was not raining at all, but very windy. Looked as if it would pour any minute, so did not walk. Never rained ’til 3:00 p.m.
