After a considerable amount of internal debate, I convinced my body it wanted to get out of bed and get ready for a thrilling day of weeding and chipping the pile of brush littering my driveway. I had breakfast, checked my usual batch of websites (boing boing, LOL cats, and woot), and realized it seemed a little dark outside. "Well," I told myself, "it could be simply overcast." I rolled up the window shade for a closer look and saw drops of water on top of the air conditioner. I went out to the kitchen for a better look and that's when the rain *really* began to fall.
It could be worse though -- I could have been outside, having hauled everything I need out of the garage, when the rainstorm started.
