|Nary a Drop of Rain|
September 12, 2018
Our neighbor, Paul, phoned this motning. He's visiting family up north for 2 weeks. We're watering his garden. I think He called to check on it. He and Mom chatted for about 15 minutes.
Mom was telling him that since he left, we have not had a single drop of rain (which is unusual for FL, where it rains nearly every day in summer). And just as she told Paul we haven't had rain, it started pouring! The rain only lasted 30 seconds, though. Pretty laughable.
I'm watching the evening news and all the preparations for hurricane Florence. It looks worse than Matthew and Irma, and going through those was bad enough. But they blew in and blew out. This one is predicted to stay stuck in place for days and cause massive flooding. I hope everyone in its path stays smart and stays safe.
I feel tired today. Don't know why. I think I slept OK, except for the leg cramp I got around 3 am. It was painful and nothing I did seemed to relieve it. I think I finally fell back asleep in spite of the pain. Oh well. I didn't have a lot I had to do today anyway.
Scott called around suppertime. He wanted to know how to roast bell peppers. We chatted for a little bit.
Now it's time for "Jeopardy" .
