|The Big Wet
||[Nov. 1st, 2008|10:28 pm]
Yesterday the rain fell intermittently. Today it was almost continuous, and at times copious. I listened to the downpours while sitting on the porch. The gray light was splendid, and the cool air was the freshest it's been in months. I'm enjoying the rain while I can— not because it will soon be over, but because the long term forecast predicts that it could stay around for quite a while, which means I'm likely to get sick of it before it ends. But I can always remind myself that it's filling the lakes so I'll have something to drink next summer.|
Despite the rain, the gray cat managed to get to the back porch and eat dinner tonight. Apparently he's decided that getting wet is better than missing a meal. Or maybe he's decided that getting wet to eat all the available food is better than letting any of his rivals get any of it. Kitties.
I almost forgot that I get an extra hour tonight because the clocks go back! Though in reality I probably won't get the extra hour tonight, since I'll probably stay awake about the same number of hours I did last night, so I'll actually get the extra hour tomorrow afternoon, which means it will feel like dinner is late and I'll get cranky. I wish they'd pick a time and stay with it.
Out of energy now. My new computer chair is a bit too low, and tires my back quickly. I'll look around for a cushion of some sort when I get the chance.
