It had rained off and on all afternoon. When I realized we needed buns for the planned dinner hamburgers, it was only sprinkling lightly so I made my run.
The store had halloween candy (I refuse to dignify this day with a capital letter) buy one get one free, so I got that, too.
Came back and inside in a dry manner. Half an hour later, the bottom fell out of the sky. Mew isn't terrified so there is no thunder in the distance beyond human hearing.
There is now a flood watch for our county. This means don't drive through any puddles at great speed. It also means to use common sense about where to drive. In addition, it assumes that most drivers have a modicum of that kind of sense.
I'm not so sure . . .
