It's been raining
all day. It's been raining all week in fact, but today it has just poured
and poured. The grassy depression next to the building I work in at the university
is now a small lake
. It makes me wonder what the roads will be like.
I already know...huge puddle
s where the water table
has reached the surface and there is no unsaturated area left to infiltrate
. Crazy folk in SUV
's driving too fast because they feel safe. The elderly
and the sane
driving to slow just to be safe
. The rain-slicked roads are a dangerous
place to be when driving in the sunshine state
Don't get me worng, I love the rain. I love the rainy season. It gives back some life to this overdrained swampland
I am just not looking forward to driving home in it.

I just went out to my car. It won't start. It figures.
