I stepped in a Poodle!
Ugh. You'd think being raised in the tropical rainforest of Washington I'd be used to rain. Used to, maybe. Like? Not on your life.
All I've heard about all week is the BIG STORM heading into my world for the weekend. It was supposed to arrive on Friday night. We battened down the hatches, moved everything inside, covered the ponds so they didn't overflow... and then nothing. No rain. A slight mist overnight.
Today still nothing arrived, but it did look ominously gloomy. Then tonight... WOW! It's pissing down buckets. I've had showers that left me drier. The recycle bin was left open after collection today and I had to tip it over before I put it away. It had about a foot of water in it!
And so I'm hunkered down in my pjs tonight, because my jeans got soaked when I ran to Target earlier. And yes, I did have on a jacket. I'm not stupid, you know.
Oh my god, as I was typing this right now, Cooper just peed in the middle of the living room! He hates the rain and hasn't gone outside to pee most of the day. Absolutly no doody has taken place all day. Suddenly the dam burst. Right in the middle of the damn room!
Update: He has been sent outside for all business and all business has been accomplished. The back yard is about 2 inches deep in water. The carpet has been cleaned. Whew.
