Its all about the timing
The monsoons have stopped and we now have our regular November rain. The mold is having a field day.
The 'timing' I speak of happened this morning. The sky was overcast with individual clouds looking a bit menacing but it had an over-all friendly feel to it.... So I took my chances and went out for provisions. Bank, gas station, tobacco store, local market, and then the grocery discount store. While in the grocery store it sprinkled but it was over by the time I was loading the car. (for new readers... windshield wipers don't work, still. Shut up. It makes my life exciting.)And don't think I didn't notice my good fortune. I gave thanks. (Mother Nature likes that... beings who are not cocky (sorry guys) and are grateful for small favors. Its the only leverage I pretend I have.)
No sooner had I pulled up in front of my apartment and got the silver bullet parked when it began to sprinkle. The sprinkle then turned to rain. It hasn't stopped since then.
I know, I know... but this is all I've got. I lead a very reclusive life and I like it that way.
