Row, row your boat

It rained Monday and Tuesday. Blessed, beautiful rain. Of course, I was tucked up in my lab watching the downpour from my window. Visibility was about 5 feet during the heaviest hour.

It was an amazing sight to see and I wish, how I wished that I could be out in it.

Growing up in the desert (all beach no ocean) I have a special love for water. Actually, my grandfather was a sailor and when I was born, we lived next to the Gunpowder river, so maybe it is more a genetic love than an acquired love. Still, I love the water.

Alas, by the time I left work the rain had finished on Monday:( The freeway underpass by my house was flooded, but DOT wouldn’t let me near the pool of water.

So Tuesday morning, the dog and I decided that we could still enjoy the rain. You see the park in our neighborhood is part of the flood control system for the area. All the water from the streets is funneled into the park. The water was about 3 feet deep in the center but spread a couple acres across. Most of it had gone, leaving only the huge debris line and pine needle mounds, but there was enough that we splish-splashed our way for a good quarter of a mile.

We arrived home with straw legs (cut grass and pine needles stuck to us) but having enjoyed out fun. It was a great way to start the day.

Now, where is the next storm?
