Damn, we needed it bad too.
It is just dryer than a popcorn fart around these parts.
It’s not raining hard but so far it looks like it has been steady for a while and the ground is just soaking it up.
It’s been so dry around here that I actually have been watering the trees and shrubs around the place.
There is a smallish pie cherry tree out from that is basically a decoration and the ground around it was so dry last week that there were cracks in the dirt an inch deep and a foot long around the roots.
So yeah, I’ll take this bit of rain for damn sure.
The lawn has been dead for a couple of months and I pretty much don’t give a shit who doesn’t like it either.
The only ones in the whole area that still have any green in them at all are the old fart across the street who sets a sprinkler out and another guy across the other street who has a sprinkler system.
Everybody else has a brown yard.
I figure since we have been in an official drought I can use that as an excuse if someone bitches. (The rental management outfit)
It’s been saving my ass from having to mow the shit anyway.
I did go out with a hoe for a few minutes yesterday and whack out a shit load of Dandelions that had flowers on them sticking up a foot.
Since they stuck out against the brown lawn they were easy to pick out and make themselves targets.
I have to go get a new tank valve assembly for a toilet and put it in today before I go to work.
It figures The Wifely Unit comes home and the damn thing crapped out and started running constantly.
Some kind of rubberish seal let go and the pieces of it are floating around in the tank.
Chineseium, I absolutely guarantee it, I know I replaced that bastard less than two years ago because I remember doing it.
It is what it is. At least she was happy the A/C was working when she got home yesterday.
Score one for me even if it was a fucking fiasco getting it done.
TGIF, for the first time in a couple days I actually got to sleep without getting woke up.
I was a tired and grumpy asshole when I got home from work last night. At least I get a couple hours before that starts again.
