Maybe I should build a boat?

It's been raining for two days nonstop now. Which is cool, but a little disturbing. I mean, this is a desert, right? It never rains in Vegas. It rains on the outskirts of Vegas, or it rains in Vegas, but only for 10 minutes at a time. This has been pretty much a downpour, and pretty constant, for two days.

And the weather folks keep adding days to the forecast. "This is gonna end by Monday" they said a few days ago. It's now supposed to clear up "on Wednesday" only to have more rain show up through Sunday.

And we just lost power briefly.

There's thunder. LOUD thunder. And lightning. And rain, rain, rain.

Our back porch is totally flooded. And the power just blinked off again.

Better blog before I lose it.

Gee whiz! We had rain off and on for two weeks after the wedding and expect more this week. Sheesh! But at least you get thunder. Stoopid LA doesn't get thunder.

I love thunder storms. Try to enjoy it as much as possible because, like you say, you don't get them very often.

Yes, a boat! Just remember to include a rudder. I forgot that on mine.
