It's always nice to wake up around 5:30AM to the sound of rain falling on your roof, coming to the realization that you didn't put your seed box covers on your planter the night before because you didn't think it was supposed to rain until Thursday. I threw on a hoodie and some Chucks (they were the first shoes I came across) and headed out the door, only to remember that my covers were over at Grandpa's. A promising start to the day, no doubt. I got them put on just in time for it to quit raining. They changed the forecast, though. 100% chance of rain today, 70% tonight and tomorrow, 60% tomorrow night, 50% Friday and Friday night. I really don't want to see any crops get flooded out - it's happened the last 3 years - but I'm steeling myself for it.
Does iPod shuffle ever change your day? "My Hero" by the Foo Fighters came on yesterday, and there's a specific image that comes to mind every time I hear that song, and I've always wanted to write about it. It inspired me to do so yesterday. I'm working on something. We'll see how crappy it turns out.
