    Like the deserts miss the rain

    We had a few light sprinkles a few weeks back, but it's been dry as abone since. Last night was unusually warm, and kind of dark. The moon was a faint glow above the overcast layer of clouds, and Matt had commecnted yesterday how it almost seemed like it was going to rain.

    Well, it certainly did. About 4 am I was woken by the pounding rain driving down onto the roof, hitting so hard it sounded like a hail storm back home. Off and on in the early morning, showers like that happened. It was kind of soothing, actually. Almost homey, for a born and bred Pacific Northwest boy like myself.

    When I finally worked up enough motivation to get up and turn the heat on, and then dived back into bed to listen to the rain for a bit longer, I actually stopped counting down time til nmy vacation for a few minutes. Eventually, I took advatage of a lull to bike into work, and by mid-morning all the rain had stopped nd the evidence was mostly gone, lasting only where a few deeper depressions hadn't fully evaporated.

    Of course, it was much nicer lying in bed listening to the rain than wiping the dust-puddles off my seat and bicycling through the piss-looking puddles with the film of oily sheen on top, but at least it was nice for a while...

    What the hell? You're in Iraq? Why?

    I hadn't checked my blog in months and when I checked it, I saw the link from you.

    How's it been going for you?

    I've been retired for ten years. Hard to believe.

    You old bastard. :)

    A gay club song is not the soundtrack I'd have picked for you, but whatever floats your boat. :)

    I wasn't aware that it was associated with gay clubs, not being my ordinary choice of venue. Unless you mean gay in the pejorative sense. :P

    We've been having gmail status 'wars' over here, and for some reason that song was stuck in my head for a couple days.
