It rained!  
Yes, all you people who live in places where it like flooded and stuff, can NOT understand the sheer joy 'round these parts that it actually RAINED! It was even - gasp! - a storm, with lightning and thunder and wind too. We lost power and cable for a bit last night and when it came back, decided we'd better unplug the computers just in case. When lightning HIT our backyard.

Damn, that was loud.

Of course, our not-quite-built deck is a giant mudpuddle at the moment, but I'll take it.

Water falling from the sky! It was awesome...

And now I'm off to visit a friend's new baby, finally. I expect the drive to be hell, since people who haven't driven on wet roads for six months don't know what the hell to do...

Yea! Go out and dance in it - after the lightening stops. We had a similar event here, but that was only after one month without rain.

But I remember well that week of November in Hayfork when it rained for the first time since May (not counting that forest-fire induced inversion that brought drizzle for one bizarre day in July). It was splendid - until everyone started burning their trash and the rain didn't stop for about three months. But hey, that's life in the rural Pacific Northwest for ya (Hayfork is at the southern edge of what is considered the Pacific Northwest).

Enjoy the baby. I'm sure you're friend will appreciate the adult visit :)
