Equinox [Mar. 20th, 2019|11:59 pm]
A furious wind came up late last night, so loud that it woke me up. Later it bean to rain, and rain continued most of the morning. While it turned dry later in the afternoon it remained mostly cloudy, and I didn't bother to go out. Tomorrow is supposed to be dry, but Friday is supposed to be rainy again,though probably not until the afternoon. Saturday morning could be rainy, but it might clear up later in the day. Sunday could be dry, but rain is likely again Monday, and then showers are possible through Thursday. The clouds obviously haven't heard that spring began today.

Equinox sounds like it would have something to do with horses. I saw no horses today. In fact I don't remember ever seeing horses on the equinox, vernal or autumnal. It's possible that horses have nothing to do with equinoxes, unless it's the horses who pull the Sun's chariot through the sky. You can't see them because you would have to look right at the sun and you would go blind before you could see them. Yeah, that must be it.

Because of the wet weather coming up I don't know when I'll be able to get to the more distant stores. Riding the bus sort of bites in rainy weather. For most stuff I'm sure I can get by with just running out to Trader Joe's or grocery Outlet during lulls in the storms, but there are a couple of things I can't get there. Maybe if Saturday afternoon looks dry enough I can go then. But no point trying to plan that far ahead in spring. It's too unpredictable.

No news on the cats yet, of course. I've really quit expecting to hear any. It's always too disappointing when it doesn't come. If I don't expect it, then it will be a pleasant surprise if one of them does turn up.

Crap, I just noticed that I've let my phone battery run down to 3%. And I just remembered I have laundry in the dryer. After midnight and still stuff to do. A dull iife is more stressful than you might think.

When I read the words, "A furious wind", I heard it in Samuel L. Jackson's voice. I had to Google the origins of the word equinox, and was kind of disappointed that it didn't have anything to do with horses. I was rooting for your chariot theory, as it sounded plausible.

I'd like Samuel L. Jackson to do the audio book of my journal. I'd always hoped it would be Joseph Campanella, but he died last year.
