When It Pours

Posted by Picasa

Yesterday, I was playing with the digital camera in the rain. The pictures above are proof of that. I am not sure if that is recommended by the manufacturer unless the camera is made for water-play, but I tried to make sure it stayed dry in between me taking shots in the downpour and then immediately running for cover as if I was someones target practice. The complexity of my dodging raindrops ended up being fun for me though I think the husband had other thoughts. It was pouring out. But we think this was a good thing as the husband and I had just finished the laying of 300 pieces of sod in our front yard.

The husbands vacation is over at 3 o'clock this afternoon. Back to the daily grind of sick human body management for him. Me? I still have bushes, flowers and vines to plant. But most of the major back-breaking work is out of the way for now. Since I don't mind digging in the dirt and making things pretty; I'll be happy as a pig in mud.

I guess that system skipped Houston. Does that area get bad flooding like Houston does?

Yes it can and does flood. In fact, we had to be sure we didn't move itno a house that lies in the 100-year flood plain.

Severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings now. . . . geesh. This oughta be interesting!
