Dry For Now

An unexpected chance to go shopping came today so I went to Safeway and got a number of things. I can almost find my way around that dimly lit place now. I have no idea why it is, but both of the Safeways I've been to in Chico have unusually dim lighting for supermarkets. Given my failing eyesight it is difficult to adjust. I'd prefer to shop at the brighter Save Mart, but Safeway's prices are better. I just wish the place didn't make me feel like ordering a drink and making out with somebody.

After returning to the apartment I considered making a quick run to Trader Joe's for beer, but got hung up on the Internet and before I realized it, it was too dark. Maybe tomorrow, after I finish the banking I absolutely must do. If it turns too late then, I might have chance Tuesday, as rain is not predicted to begin until afternoon. The big rain is supposed to arrive Wednesday. The cold air brought by the polar vortex has been dryer than expected, but warmer air from the Pacific is expected to be wet enough to make for a decent storm.

No news on the black cat resembling Shadow, but a few people think it might be theirs and so the trappers might go for it. They try not to trap cats who aren't pretty close to definitely identified by an owner with housing, as there is nowhere to put the ones who have no home to go to. I'm sure I'll get a PM if it is trapped and turns out not to be any of the other cats.

The dinner I made tonight was too big and I'm feeling loggy. Time to wrap this up.
