It took a week, but the black cloud that follows me around finally arrived last night. For the first time since I left here in the spring the area received significant rain. Starting about 6:30 pm the weather radio start alarming. This was not totally unexpected after a day when temperatures reached 106 degrees and the humidity was running in the 90+% range all day. In the first 45 minutes we had accumulated an inch and a half of the wet stuff and when it was finally all finished the total was right at two inches.Today the temperature is mid 80's and the humidity is 68%, which is a lot more to my liking.
I'm still waiting to hear about the Cruiser, but I'm sure hoping something will happen soon. I'm to the point where the cupboard is bare and if I don't hear something soon Mel and I are going to have to head for Wally World.
Other than that, things are mostly quiet around here. The Cardinals won last night and can wrap up their series with the Giants tonight and then it's on to the World Series. Time to go get the mail and see if anyone sent me any money to help me enjoy the good life.
