They're trying to wash us away · 2:50am
Okay, things are not as critical in my neck of the woods as they were in Randy Newman's "Louisiana 1927" ("Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline"), but they're close: we have had more rain this week than in the entire year up to this week. It isn't enough to relieve a long-standing drought, but some of the area reservoirs have recovered from Alarmingly Low to merely Low. I need hardly point out that flood-control measures are occupying most of my sparse free time; in fact, nearly a quarter of an inch of rain fell in the time it took me to get halfway to the grocery store and then turn back for lack of forward visibility. I commented elsewhere that this was the sort of thing that happens when you put Rarity on the Weather Patrol, and got this response: "Rarity wouldn't screw it up this bad, and the clouds would be more artistically arranged. I suspect Sombra."
At least it's not cold enough for any of this stuff to, um, crystallize.
