It's another wet one. This was supposed to be the driest year on record. The weather guessers apparently asked the wrong questions. Mother Nature must be laughing hysterically. It rained again last night, enough to wake me up asking the question .... is that rain I hear? Is that more wet stuff coming off the roof and falling to the bottom of the drain pipe two feet from my head? Yes ... yes it is. Thankfully it's on the OUTSIDE of the house.
Not long after I bought this place, I discovered a waterfall INSIDE hidden behind the shutters that cover the big front window. WHY ... I asked. How is that happening? Turns out there was a two inch spot on the fake rock wall outside that let in water like the Mississippi River. It's a good thing I have good hearing, or it could have been disastrous. I got it fixed ... but I'm always listening for water drops.
After giving Cooper his morning snacks .. I break two into four pieces so he thinks he's getting FOUR ... and sipping my morning cup-o-joe, the thought occurred to me that I was freezing. Just what temperature is it in here?
I got out my handy dandy meat thermometer. This should tell me, right? 64!!!! How could that be? The heater is set to 68 degrees.
