The never ending unforcast tropical depression
So here I am on Sunday the seventeenth of May. I was watching the weather and there is only a slight chance for scattered thunderstroms. I'm thinking a nice ride that week because I had four days off. I went to bed dreaming of nice straight Florida roads lined with huge old oaks with moss hanging off them. Ahhhhhh
I woke up, sort of, to the sound of rain pattering on the roof. It can't possibly be raining so I drifted back to sleep.
The next morning it was overcast, I checked the weather and they said a 90% chance of rain. I looked at the radar on my company website and there is a small rotating slight depression over the gulf. I set a five gallon bucket out on the driveway to see how much rain. The next morning it was full. That's two feet. I emptyed it out and set it out again, two feet. Needless to say I didn't get much riding done. I was out in the shed and it was raining hard enough that I couldn't see the house twenty feet away.
It is still raining. I got just enough dryness to mow my lawn, which had grown 6 inches. I went from a dead lawn to a lush jungle growth in a week.
I think I'll go get a six pack and a movie.
