Rain and more rain. Today the news crews were out covering storm damages instead of the homeless. Lots of trees down. Roads closed too. Hundreds of folks tried to drive through puddles only to discover those puddles were really deep. Many thousands without power.
The River Rescue team is working overtime. Perhaps Mexican nationals think we will be too busy to pay attention if they try to cross the border now…so across the Tijuana River they come. Rescued too. As are the fools who attempt to drive through the San Diego River.
I didn’t have to pick up Georgiana or read until ten thirty. To get out of Marta’s way, we went out into the grey, wet world with our camera’s yesterday.
After class we drove to a thrift store or two to get candle sticks, and to our local market for matches. We discovered that we were a small oasis of power in the middle of a massive power outage. It obviously hasn’t rained since we stopped smoking as we got rid of all our lighters and matches five years ago. We had candles tho.
