Splash... splash... splash...

    It rained here last night.  Actually, that's kind of an understatement.  It friggin' poured here last night with no end of blistering flashes of lightning and window-rattling thunder.  Normally, I love lying in bed listening to the life-threatening weather.  I don't know why, but I always seem to sleep better when Mother Nature smacks us around a bit.  But, there's a price to pay for such blissful slumber.

    When I stepped into the basement to get to working this morning, I had to stop and wonder if I didn't actually wake up to find myself in a WWII submarine movie.  The only thing missing was a chain-smoking, grease-covered German named Dieter telling me that we are utterly screwed.  There were puddles and ponds everywhere, and the poor dehumidifier just sat wheezing and twitching like a terrified mouse that's been backed into a corner. 

     Oh well...  Today is apparently "Mop Day."  And, in my world, that's a sign that spring is just around the corner.  Yippee!


  1. Or it's a sign you should be building an ark.

  2. dear Dan
    oh my! I hope that it doesn't get too deep
    Good Luck Captain! (salutes you)

  3. Can't have the lush beautiful spring without nature first giving it's grounds a nice drink of wake up water. It's just to bad it got into your home! I'm impatiently waiting for spring myself. Daily pacing and checking my yard for news signs of life. Soon.........very soon!
