Looking at the radar, there is a huge red blot right over my area.. in fact over most of my city, excluding the extreme southern portions. I was actually going to leave the house and do shopping things today.
Most of the major roads are flooded or flooding. Since I don't really *have* to go anywhere, I'm not.
We've been having a drought. Because of that, the ground is too dried to readily absorb the water. I've lived in Va Beach through the mandatory 5-6 water restrictions when we didn't have a water source and we were in legal poop with north carolina over the use of a resevoir that straddled the state line. So it's weird to me to get water at the table when I sit down in a restaurant. It's weird to see people watering their lawns or washing their cars.
The rain isn't being nice to my connection, though. (I've been given the gift of 45K and up connections this week for some reason) and though it *says* it's connected at a good rate, it's not really SHOWING me that, as I'm only downloading at 110.58 bps from the ftp. hehe.
And even then it's clogging.
I slept too long because it's just *so* easy to fall back asleep when it's pouring rain. Pity that I was alone. Dreams took care of some of that, and besides it would be goofy to try to fit another person on that cot... but I could do it, dammit.
I'm going to have a sun-dried tomato bagel, some coffee, then I'm going to finalize my little project (OoOoOoh mysterious), I think... I hope...
And I'm going to take something for the sinuses before my teeth start aching.
My cat has an adorable tiny pink bottom lip. And (comparably) huge, pointy teeth.
