Well my subjective impression that I had not seen it rain so hard so constantly for so long in all my time in SB since 1976 appears confirmed. Brother Steve comments to that effect and CNN reported that a long standing record for rain in one day in SB was broken Wednesday. More than four inches recorded at the airport not a mile from where Carol and I are located.
More rain is said to be on the way as this picture suggest. The bird upper right is a pelican, I think.
Clouds are sometimes said to "scud." I think these clouds are "scudding" across the sky.
Between the scudding clouds and the stormy sea, a sliver of one of the Channel Islands is visible.
A dark and gloomy sky, suggesting further rain.
I sit here feeling like an idiot. This morning when I tried to pour coffee the lid came off the pot and I managed to give my left wrist a pretty good scalding. I have no one to blame but myself since last night when I fixed up the pot to make coffee I didn’t apparently put the lid on properly. So my left wrist hurts. I have been applying ice to it, but it’s hard to keep the ice applied in a plastic bag when one is typing. The burn is no the downside of the wrist. I tried to push the ice inside my sweater cuff and use it to hold the ice in place. But that didn’t work. So I just got pissed and stupidly I attached the ice to my wrist with masking take. That’s all I could find. Now what am I going to do. The ice is melting and I have attached the bag to my wrist with masking tape. To get new ice in that plastic bag, I am going to have to RIP that masking tape off my wrist, taking all sorts of hair with it. Talk about dumb.
I need to start think more about the consequences of my actions.
But it’s probably too late for that.
Why should I start now?
I kid you not:
