There is something seriously wrong. Someone—Ceiling Cat?—turned on the giant spigot in the sky and forgot to turn it off. It has been raining nonstop all day, and all week it's rained every time I left the house. Today I heard we were to get a whole summer's worth of rain in one day, and with an hour and a half left to go, that seems to be true.
This has got to stop. Now. Send it to California. They need it. We don't. I did not plant a water garden this year; my plants' roots need to dry out. And I'm tired of being soaked every time I take out the recycles.
Plus it's cold. I keep eyeing the thermostat...but it's fricking July! We ought to be sleeping to the sound of fans slapping at the humid summer air! Not huddled under two blankets in our winter pajamas, listening to the smattering of rain against the bricks.
I am going to go to bed now, and I want this mess to be cleared up when I wake up. Got it?
