The Governor's *got it*!! Darling picture, listener! Don't know how you do it!
We gots lots of rain. Culverts already running at 90%, and the flood warning doesn't start till this afternoon. Co-committant with that is the winter weather warning for this afternoon into evening -- three to six inches. I'm thinking I won't be going to town. WILL make it up to John's though.
Made it to John's so am good for a few more days. Water over the bridge a bit when I left; more than a bit when I came back. May have to move the car up the road. Beau seems to be enjoying being inside today more than being out. Which is cool with me. Guessing the wild critters are hunkering down, which gives him less to watch. . . .
So what am I doing today? In about an hour I'll be leaving for a Christmas party for Chicago-area science writers. Had also been hoping to get a bit of work done, but looks like it will be a very little bit. Did get some work done yesterday, even though I had a parade commettee meeting in the evening and in the norming the parade officers had to meet at the bank to properly handle the change of presidential leadership. (Corporate checking accounts are much more of a hassle than I would have expected.)I think I have mentioned that last month I was working on patent applications for the first time in my life. What I am doing at the moment is steps toward marketing approval for that drug. Which is also the first time in my life I've done FDA regulatory submissions. That's actually a large part of science/medical writing, but it's a part where you can't get a job without experience and you can't get experience without a job. so now, at age 75, I'm finally getting a crack at it. In a setting where nobody else involved knows any more than I do. Go figure!
Sounds like you are actually having fun, Bill, lol! But the party sounds like *more* fun than the patent applications. . . . I filled out a copyright form once. Sure never wanted to do another. . . . Did get the car up the hill, as the river was rising pretty fast. As it was had to back further into the river than I was real comfortable with. Good to go now. Let it snow!
Whooweee! You sure do live an exciting life up there in the hills! So glad you got there and back again in time and got to move the car okay. It's a good thing that some of that rain is going to chrystalise and stay on the ground until some of that river goes down! It's been raining much here too, and switching over to snow any minute if it hasn't already (haven't looked out there in awhile).
As for me, I'm crazy busy getting ready for Margaret's services, company coming, work, a seeker coming for spiritual guidance and trying to finish up Christmas gifts...all before the weekend begins! I *hope* we'll have company, anyway. Yesterday, Eldest*Granddaughter was diagnosed with strep throat. She's fine now, and no longer contagious (hurrah for antibiotics when you need them!), but we're waiting to hear how the rest of the family over there fares.
Oh, that's Mr. Chippy Halftail. He lives here with us, ever since Emma-cat stole part of his tail. We don't have the heart to send him packing from the garage. At least we can identify him from all the others, easily. And he keeps all the rest of them out, as well as Mssr. Red Squirrel who used to reside in the garage...so he earns his keep.
Snowing. . . . BIG globby snow. Beau came in half soaked, but is out again at his own request. The snow IS sticking. But you can also hear it hitting the skylights, so I hope we don't get too much: it's *very* heavy. . . . Would be extra hard on the trees.
Hope you can bring it off! Sounds like your plate is full, and overflowing! HugZ!
Long (we got up at 0545) but productive and all around pretty good day. Traffic was OK going to the Bay Area and back, weather was fine (pretty clear and just at freezing in the morning), got shopping done, court was easy, getting caught up with some odds and ends. Started reading "The Mystery of 31 New Inn" by R. Austin Freeman while parked in the hall of the courthouse awaiting the appointed hour, and am quite intrigued. Will sign off here and recommence reading. I don't recall having read any of his works before. TTFNSurprised a chipmunk could discourage a squirrel; force of character, I suppose!
Heavy: you have heavy snow and I have heavy plate...! :-P
He's got high hopes...
