A change in the weather...

...which, for once, apparently involves the meteorologists getting it right.

The prediction was for rain by this evening and, sure enough, the clouds have rolled in again and one can see those gauzy curtains of rainfall to the West, over the ocean but slowly moving this way.

As of a few minutes ago, the rain hadn't reached the island, or this container ship...



It will be welcome when it arrives.

Any change would be welcome here.

Such optimism as I might about have had about anything positive happening has almost evaporated completely now.

At least if it rains, I can enjoy that. Infrequent as it is here, wet weather is refreshing.

We've got plenty of rain to spare over here. I'll FedEx you a load, you scribbling ole fart.

Better you should FedEx me some of the stronger waters from Scotland or Ireland, you superannuated ink-stained wretch.

I would definitely toast your health -- not your mental health, for which it is too late -- with each sip!

Betty -- don't tell anyone, okay? I'd hate for such a slanderous thing to get out....

((((Scribbs)))) That is an awesome picture! It is beautiful where you are. That in itself is a blessing. If you could just see the scenery around here! (there is none!) LOL! Enjoy that rain! :)

Enjoy the rain when it gets there. The sound of rain is very soothing to me.

I'd settle for a hurricane about now, for a Big change. The neighbors would hate me if I got my way. oh well
