I have many things to tell you. We saw almost and inch and a half of rain, is one of those things. Another: we're forecast to pick up at least that from as-yet-formed TS Nicole. Another: the fancies want to give us lows in the forties by the end of the week. My god. Hat weather looms. Could it be true? We shall see. The city turns up to inspect both the plumbing and the electric this week. Cross 'em if you got 'em, friends and fans of whatever it is that comes next.
