This morning WFAA's Cynthia Vega brought us news we didn't want to hear, but we were not surprised. More rain today. This is the eighth straight day of rain here in our part of Texas. In fact, Cynthia said we have only had two days without rain so far this month, meaning we are already two times greater than the normal amount of rain we usually receive in October.
At least it isn't 1932. That was a record breaking year with 10.8 inches of rain for the month.
Sure mrs. mil10 and EK have had plenty of time to use their Mary Poppins umbrellas, their souvenirs from the musical. However, I am ready for the rain to hold off for a while.
UPDATE: If it has been raining, it is currently raining, and is expected to continue to rain, why can't the garbage men close the trash can lid after picking up the trash? Perhaps this is one of life's little mysteries. While we are at it, here is another one. If "neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds," then why does a neighbor's car that is parked too close to my mailbox mean no mail for me? Maybe someday we will know the answers.
