It Has Rained SO Much

That I’d swear I saw salmon swimming up my driveway. Man, it’s wet out there! We’re even under a flood watch until noon tomorrow.


Looks like we’re moving into the regular rain instead of the downpour we’ve been having.

Not a whole Hell of a lot has been going on around here. Taking SWMBO to the ferry landing in the mornings; picking her up at QFC in the evenings. SSDD as far as my usual chores. Still meaning to get down in the basement and get some straightening up done.


Haven’t been able to take the Dog for any walks, but I have got him to where I can chase him around the big room without him just turning onto his back and laying there. Maybe he’s getting used to me/us/this place. He still runs with his butt tucked under him though.

brun17aWell, quit raining enough to take the Dog for a walk. The ground is mushy! Even my packed crushed-rock driveway has a sinking feeling to it when one steps on it. The back-40 is soaked and there is water puddled everywhere. Our backyard river has started up again. All my “catch-basins” are overflowing. It’s Wet Out There!

The wire holding my long-wire dipole between two trees has come loose on one end. It’s still caught up in the tree somewhere, but the wire itself is drooping about 30 feet lower than usual. Need to get the tennis ball gun again. And, Damn, it’s mushy out there!

Took the Dog along for a trip to the Post Office. If he didn’t know what “that windows” was before, he does now. Got a hamburger patty out of the stop. I got the $5 3-piece chicken lunch. That’ll probably do me for the rest of the day.

Thought I heard a “thump” from out there someplace. Window’s slightly shook.

Very Wet when going to pick SWMBO up tonight. Our road is mostly mud with some really deep potholes. Almost needing to put the truck in 4-wheel drive!

And that’s it. We be home. MCARC 2-meter chate net went well.

Holy, Hell! It Is WET Out There!

It has been raining since we got back from our trip. Not steady nor all the time, but, close enough. I’ve been able to get out for a walk without getting rained on a couple of times. And it’s really been coming down today! I’m starting to hear reports of trees falling over from being soaked.

Can’t say that I’ve been particularly busy or anything. Just haven’t felt like posting. Still have my “daily routine” with my usual chores and such; but haven’t done very much beyond that. Been scanning a LOT of pictures trying to get all those done and put away.


Last Saturday, during our usual Walmart stop on the way home from eating (at El Sombrero’s this time) SWMBO bought me the complete Twilight Zone series. On DVD but still, all 150+ episodes. So I’ve been ripping and converting them for the NAS and having a Twilight Zone marathon. Cool!

I also picked up the complete James Bond collection on Blu-Ray for my Father-in-law for Christmas. He’s a BIG fan. SWMBO is going to pick up a Blu-ray player (soon I hope) so we can get both in the mail soon.

Turns out: I am a Dog person and I miss having a Dog around. I still miss my Dog but started looking around for breeds of Dog’s that stay between 15-20 pounds and short haired. The problem I have is that all the “adoption” places want $200+ (usually around $400) to “adopt” a Dog. Sorry, probably not happening.And I guess those places don’t realize how many Dog’s they have to kill because they are just too out-priced for most of us. Dipshidiots.

Got to pick SWMBO up at the QFC tonight. Cool! Rained the whole time I was out though.

Anywho, that’s all that’s been going on around here. Raining. Scanning. Choreing. Ah, the Retired Life.
