Chance of Rain

A small percentage chance of rain was predicted this weekend. We were doubtful. We headed north on Saturday morning to visit Handy's mom. The fog grew rapidly thicker as we neared the coast.

Was this rain or just heavy mist?

This was definitely rain on the way back. 

Now that I see the bad cell phone photos enlarged on the computer screen, they look almost identical, but trust me, there was a difference. First rain of the season, the road is slick, folks. We passed a rollover accident. 

When we got home... ugh, it was partially cloudy and humid. I don't do humid very well. But by dinner time there was a slight pooling of liquid on the driveway.  I didn't notice other rain activity until 2:30 a.m. when there was a drip from the eaves at 3 second intervals. I kid you not. I mentally timed that drip for over an hour.

Humidly and exhaustedly yours,

I hate those kind of drips. I have often done the same thing - time the drip for way too long.

I won't tell you how much rain we get here, except to say that we really take notice when there is an actual sunny day.

Meanwhile, we had the wettest October on record up in Eastern Washington; the sound of water rushing through the gutters and down the drainage spout makes me get up to pee multiple times a night!
