Storm's a comin'!

Early this morning, Twitter started heating up about a thunderstorm starting mid afternoon. The sun was out all morning and at 2... Now it is 4 and, all of a sudden, the weather has turned on a dime. It's raining really hard. And I just heard thunder.

On TV and in the movies, pouring rain and thunder are required if your scene is set in Seattle. The reality is that the most common weather is cloudy. Maybe some drizzle. Pouring rain is not terribly common and thunderstorms only happen maybe once or twice a year. Unless it's Fictional Seattle. Then bring your umbrella and stay out from under trees. (fictional umbrella and trees also work)

I did some sewing this morning and then went out to Grocery Outlet. But I got hit with a giant slap of sleepy and quit. Gas and Diet Dr. Pepper will have to be on another day. I came home and slept for 2.5 hours. I took a Coriciden in hopes of putting the kibosh on whatever the impending sore throat was hailing but the Coriciden put the kibosh on me! I won't be doing that again. Now I can't tell if I am coming down with something or have a Coriciden hangover. See kids? You can get all the way to 68 years old and still do stupid things so hang in!

I went to write a new Continued entry and remembered something I wanted to take a picture of so I dug out an old file folder and found what I wanted. But, then fell into a pre-internet rabbit hole. I found my 1st and 2nd grade report cards - 2 first 1st grade, one from Kansas City and one from Winston-Salem. Reading the teacher comments, it's now clear that my school career did not start to tank until 2nd grade. Nice to know I had one year of glory.

I also found letters and photos of people I have absolutely no recollection of. None. I found letters and photos of people I do remember but don't care about. I found lots of newspaper clippings of various things - some interesting, some not. I culled out about half and tossed.

And somehow then it became 4:30.

Here are the Geometry Triplets I dreamed up this morning while I was swimming.
