Rain, rain, go awayPosted: September 2, 2011
For the first three weeks of this project, we sang Mother Nature’s praises. While it was unbelievably hot, we felt to rain. It seems we were in a rain bubble with areas all around us (and as close as a mile or two away) seeing far more showers than we. It was like the clouds knew we needed a reprieve.
Apparently Mother Nature seems to have lost interest with us. Here’s the email exchange from EARLY this morning.
To: Hillary and Scott
I woke up thinking about different things on your house and decided to tell you I knew exactly what Allan Sherman’s grandfather meant when he told Alan never to forget that “A wet bird never flies at night”. While I was waiting for our computer to finally figure out that it wanted to work I looked outside and saw our patio flooded from an obvious storm within the past 5 hours which I didn’t even hear . . . (surprising isn’t it?). I can only hope that our storm was “random” and you didn’t get rain. I’m sure getting back to sleep is not going to happen until I find out what happened. See you in a few hours.

Go ahead and sleep, resting comfortably in the fact that the grounds crew works 24×7 and has superior hearing.
As Greff always says, you have to maintain a sense of humor.
