color cycle (slow)

Splat

Today's weather was interesting.

Wake up at noon: Absolutely clear.
Head to buy a new mattress pad (the staples I used to fix the one I had ripped out) at Jamestown Mall: Kinda cloudy.
Head out of the mall: 50mph of wind, which is really quite a lot of fun, ripping branches off trees and nearly blowing me over. (But it's also fun to feel! Whee!)
Ten minutes of driving later: SPLAT. Y'know, the bit of the driver (my father) going at 20 MPH in a 60 zone, relying on head/tail lights to see other cars because rain has completely obscured seeing through the windshield, etc...

We needed the rain, though. With a whole week of weather like this predicted, we might get the water we need to get out of this drought...
