Re: Rain, rain, and basil


yep since 4am this morning.... clear for an hour or
so, then rain again... street in front of work was
flooded this am, and backyard had some standing water
tonight here.

Can't tell now if that is thunder or
fireworks...probably both.

Alan will get over it, just blame me...
