We got our rain, and though it never got very intense it has lasted a long time, and could continue off and on until early tomorrow afternoon. That's when I'll be going shopping, so I won't have to worry about getting soaked when the rain returns Sunday. The prediction of snow has been restored, but only for the hour from six to seven next Thursday morning. It's expected to get very cold, but only when the midweek storm is waning. I guess we might get lucky, but the odds are slim. I expect we'll freeze but stay dry.

I ended up short of sleep again today, and might again tomorrow, which would leave me shopping while muddled— never the best idea, but there it is. At least I'll have the shopping out of the way, and thus will have the weekend entirely free for recuperating from the exhaustion. But the lack of sleep the last couple of nights is already telling on my brain, and I'm starting to nod off right now, so all I want to do is flop down in front of the television and probably go to sleep before whatever I try to watch is over. Good thing English people aren't murdering one another tonight. I hate when I don't get to see the ends of English murders.
