The Name of the Game is...


And more rain. And more rain, just for good measure. We're .11" from breaking the December record from 2001, and a mere 1.28" from breaking the all-time December rainfall record of 6.06", set in 1955.

We don't live in a wet land, although we live in an area dependent upon water. The highway is closed because of flooding, and several local streets have water up to the houses. It's quite the experience, but all photos of people in the newspaper have revealed people smiling.

Much better to have an abundance of water as a novelty, I suppose. The only unhappy voices I've heard have been from the orange farmers...their groves are too wet to harvest their crops.

It's always something.

On a different note, the Chupa-doggy seems to be adjusting well to her new environs. Today we'll take her to the vet, to make sure she's as healthy as possible. I saw her tail wag yesterday, and it was a nice thing to see.
