My dad is getting rid of his car- he gave up driving it a couple of years ago, except for the occasional trip up and down the block just to keep the thing working. This means two things: First, we have no handy way of getting out of town quickly when the whole place burns in the inevitable forest fire that will one day consume it; and second, there will now be enough room in the garage for me to spread out those boxes of stuff I've got stacked in there. I'll be able to go through them and see what I've got (and maybe what to get rid of.) That's going to be a project.
The rain might be over for now. Tomorrow might even resemble actual spring.
