We are finally getting rain. And this time, I mean real honest-to-goodness rain. It's been raining all day long, and I am LOVING it!
Just to give you an idea - this is the current radar image for this area...it's the most colorful radar image I've seen for this area in months!
Daniel and I ran to Wichita this evening, and we went through some pretty heavy downpours.
And I just have to post this one. A few years ago, some genius decided that it would be a brilliant idea to put roundabouts in at the interstate exits here. OK, in concept, they're great. But they made them too small. Tractor-trailers can not get around them without running up on the sidewalks every. single. time. It's stupid.
Bottom line is I'm thankful for the rain. We need it so badly here and I am not complaining one bit that we are finally getting some. However, it probably will result in me doing much less walking this week (I did a total of 21.93 miles last week!) and it's also going to make my new walking paths impassable, unless I want to slide through the mud down a steep embankment - sorry, but that's not on my list of fun things to do! Although it would make for an interesting blog post.....
Anyway, Alex did end up going with his father for a few hours this evening, which allowed me and Daniel to do our run to Wichita - but the details of that trip are going to remain a secret for a little while yet. ;) Suffice it to say that we had fun, and I may (or may not) spill the beans at some point....ok, I probably will, but not yet.
So now, I am going to go do some cleaning, and maybe curl up on the couch and watch a movie or sew or something. I'm feeling the need to relax for a while.
