It’s Humid Outside

It’s just a tiiiiny bit humid outside. I know of at least one baseball and one soccer tournament in town this weekend. If their fields have seen as much rain as my yard has seen, their chances of getting in many games this weekend look poor. That’s going to really tick off all the people who put in a ton of effort getting the tournaments ready.

It’s also a little wet inside at the Wilson residence. My gutters backed up directly at the worst possible spot, sending water into my basement. Clearing up the gutters was simple (but nerve-wracking, what with the three consecutive lightning strikes within a quarter mile of my house just a few minutes prior), but the damage was done. Oh well, it’s my own fault for not being prepared. I should have learned my lesson two years ago, the last time this happened.

Oh, and for the record the best way to scare the beans out of a dog is to order up a huge lightning strike mere blocks away at the exact moment the dog has decided she wants to see what’s going on in the backyard. I now have one very pathetic dog who is afraid to leave the office.

I dumped about 2” out of my impromptu rain gauge (a pie pan). And now they’re saying it’s going to be windy as all get-out this afternoon. Hang on to your kites.
