Drying out

Such a heavy rain struck us for basically the whole day and a goodly portion of the night. Meaning I walked home in a flood. Which while not fun in itself gives me the chance to savor one of life's underappreciated pleasures: putting wet socks on a radiator and watching them dry stiff. I think I might appreciate it more even now that I've spent most of a winter - now in the past - without heat. It is, at any rate, a solid illustration of recovery.

We got that storm the day and night after it hit there. The basement parking garage was still four inches deep in water this afternoon.

I'm glad you made it home safe and, hopefully, not too drenched. It seems like you had reasons to move from that other place for a while.

Wow. Four inches of water? I hope it didn't damage anyone's engines.

Yeah, I feel much better off in the playce I am now. And not as drenched as I could have been. Believe me, I've been there.
