Now that's what I call rain!

For one of the first times since the rainy season began, lo these many weeks ago, we've had a real, honest MidWest-style downpour. No lightning or high winds, but that's probably for the best.

I was off-line for a week or so during the holidays, and then connected but not up to it for the last several days as Mike's bout of flu took it's (much milder) turn with me. Now I feel great, but still have an alarming-sounding cough. I'm trusting on my compulsive hand washing to keep others in my environment from catching this.

In other weather news, last weekend a tree fell over and knocked out part of our side yard fence. The relentless rains have dissuaded me from cleaning anything up yet. I find I'm also contemplating using this conveniently provided break in the fence as a gate instead of a wall, but there isn't really a need for a gate there. It's just such a loooong wall that the interruption seemed almost nicer than the completed run.
