Uh Oh!



You might remember that I noticed a few chairs gathering in Cayucos right before the 4th of July last year.

It's going to be a different scene this year:

I'm glad that I got to see the traditional bringing out of the chairs last year, anyway.

From Drought to Deluge

A few weeks ago I was in Dallas.

It was hot and steamy. It makes this apple look more like a tomato.

More important, it was raining. And raining hard. At 3am, I got to wake up because my phone was giving me flash flood alerts. I'm glad that it was able to know I was in a flash flood area, but telling an out-of-towner to move to high ground isn't quite enough info. First of all, I'm not sure what a Texan would consider high ground. And second, even so I wouldn't know where it was.

Still, I figured I was safe in the 3rd floor of the Hampton Inn.

And so I found it was important to find cover wherever I could.

I just wish I'd brought a tanker truck so I could bring the water back home with me.
