Texas is soggy! Just in case you haven’t seen the news lately or if you don’t live in the great state of Texas, it has rained every day for a month. Or more. And still more rain is expected. At first, we were delighted. We’ve been in a drought for two years. We really need the rain. But this is getting to be ridiculous! It’s July and we haven’t had one 100 degree day yet! Which I’m actually glad about. Thank you, God! But all this rain, I’m beginning to wonder if we shouldn’t start building a boat.
Yesterday when I was out and about with the kids running errands, we got stuck at WalMart because the rain was so heavy. We stood with our full cart at the entrance to WalMart with firemen who were also stuck after buying groceries. Torrents of rain came down. So we bought lunch at Subway and waited. Finally, we made it home. My roses along my driveway are almost ruined from the rain. There’s no point in spraying for black spot because in thirty minutes it’ll rain again and wash it off. Sigh.
But that’s not the end of our water issues! We came home last night about nine o’clock, and I discovered the freezer door had been left open and had defrosted all over the floor. More water. So mopped that mess up and threw out things from the freezer door that had thawed. But this morning there is more water. This time under the washing machine. So I think yesterday’s flood in my laundry room was a combination of freezer defrosting and washing machine leaking. Calgon take me away! Oh wait! No more water! Please!!!
Speaking of too much water, we took our kids to see Evan Almighty last week. Have you seen this movie? It’s a lot of family fun and relatively clean humor except for some bird poop humor. And well, with that many birds chasing Evan Almighty what do you expect? Anyway, I’m starting to wonder with the movie, the rain and the laundry room flood if God isn’t trying to tell me to get hammer and nails and a hunk of wood. If Amazon accidentally sends me a book called Ark Building for Dummies then I guess I’ll have my answer.
Here’s a funny bit you might want to see on youtube.com. It’s Bill Cosby talking about Noah. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zyc1315KawQ
Until next time, glug, glug, glug.
