The rain has been quite impressive tonight. There have been periodic downpours since late afternoon Tuesday, with drizzling between, and I'm quite sure we're going to get considerably more than the two inches that were predicted to be the maximum. So far the roof repairs seem to be holding up, except the one around the skylight on the back porch. That's still leaking. If that leak were about a foot north of where it is, it would drip into the sink. As it is, it drips on the sink board, and the sink board has no slope to it, so the water just pools there. Sometimes the feral cats hop onto the sink board. If they do it tonight, they're in for an unpleasant surprise.

The head yanking went well, but I'm sure I'll screw up my neck again within just a few days. I fell asleep on the couch again (and thus no update last night) and my head was crunched up against the arm rest for a couple of hours. That's never good.

Now I'm going to go out and sit in the garage with the door open and listen to the rain for a while. It's not as terribly cold as I'd expected it to be, or as it usually is during a big rainstorm, so this rare opportunity must be grasped.
