Small shocks to the system
So far, this morning has been notable mostly for a string of minor surprises.
I turned in early last night, so I had no idea how badly the 0.4-cent county sales tax proposal was being beaten. On the way outside, I noted that however much rain fell amid the endless rumblings last night, it still wasn't enough to get the dirt off my car. And the bottom half of my doorknob was covered with some dark, gunky substance, like a partially-chewed Tar-Bar (money back if you get a stone).
Oh, and more rain is on the way some time in the next half hour. Let's see how it rearranges the dirt.
