Holy Hermine!

Holy Hermine! Last night when I watched the 10 o'clock weather report, they were claiming that Hermine's torrential rains were all going to be west of the metroplex today and that we would receive 1-2 inches of rain.

At about 10:30, I let Lola out before putting her in her kennel for the night and things went south from there.  She took care of business, but on the way back into the house, spotted a mouse running along the bottom of the fence and the chase was on...in the mud.  Due to Lo's constant patrolling, there is a nice dirt path along my fence line, which due to the rain, was now muddy. I mean it, she is relentless with the patrol.  Don't even think about walking behind our house, or she'll give you the what for.  Want to solve the problem along the Mexican/US border?  Send a herd of schnauzers.  They'll keep everyone on their respective sides.  But I digress. 

So Lola spots the poor little mouse and a chase ensues.  I may have already mentioned it, but the chase was in the mud.  I screamed,  "LOLA STOP CHASING THAT MOUSE IN THE MUD!  LEAVE IT ALONE!".  I herded her up in the corner of the yard and grabbed her up in a towel.  She was the muddies little mud rat ever.  I had to bathe her before I put her to bed. 

I woke up this morning and it was raining.  I got to my 7:00 class this morning and it was a monsoon.  I cannot tell you how many of my students made the long walk from the parking lot to the building sans umbrella or jacket.  What is wrong with the youth of America?

I cannot believe the way it rained all day.  There was some flooding in areas of the metroplex, which is bad, but the local news felt the need to show us the rescue for hours on end.  They interrupted General Hospital.  They love to interrupt General Hospital.  What would I do without Soap Net?

Most of the rain has stopped now, but if I was a betting person, I'd bet that it kicks up again about 6:45 when I'm trying to walk into my evening class.
