It has rained most of the day, but not very impressively. There have been no downpours, and the total from the storm will probably end up being less than an inch. That's more than we've had in one day since autumn, but it won't make much of a dent in the drought. There could be more rain tomorrow, but right now it is easing up, and I suspect that the storm will come to a premature end. It's apt to be weeks until we get another— if we ever get another.

I still haven't gotten any vinegar, so no coleslaw again tonight. Perhaps the prolonged deprivation will serve as a reminder next time I shop.
