Thursday morning report

rainy feb 24

It’s a chilly, rainy Thursday morning. I’m sitting at my great-grandmother’s kitchen table with a cup of coffee at my side and a very wet Australian shepherd at my feet.

The rain started around midnight and has continued in fits and starts ever since. The rain gauge had .7 inches of water in it when I checked about 40 minutes ago. The weather radar shows the big blob of rain that passed through overnight is almost gone, off to Tennessee and Kentucky. But there’s another, even bigger and more menacing blob approaching from the plains of Oklahoma and Kansas, so it looks like a good day to stay inside.

That’s just as well, since I have a couple of writing assignments and a 5 p.m. Monday deadline.
