The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

When will it ever end?

Supposedly, this weather pattern will finally shift about 36 hours from now, and good riddance. Since the 10th of the month there have been maybe five hours that weren't overcast, and we've had close to half a foot of rain, carefully timed to ensure that the rivers remain just under flood stage. My office is wetter now than it was last Thursday when the seepage started.

Of course, this mess isn't about to go quietly. Between now and tomorrow afternoon, we're being threatened with thunderstorms, another couple of inches of rain, and maybe some snow on the way out. It's not going to stick — ground temperatures are way above freezing — but this is the classic example of adding insult to injury.

TrackBacks if any:

It's supposed to get down to 23 degrees tomorrow night here in Fayetteville. Warm ground or not, that's cold enough for snow to stick for a little while, at least on the vegetation. Wouldn't be the first white Thanksgiving I've seen.

Middle 30s here, they say. Then again, it's always been a truism around here that if you flip a coin, it's 50-50; if you have the most accurate measuring devices and computer models in the world, it's 54-46.

I wasn't aware that it was possible to live in Seattle without actually moving.

I'm ready for a change.

Heck, I was beginning to think that somehow I had ended up in jolly old england with the weather the past couple of days, wet, foggy, mist, rain. I don't think we are in oklahoma, Toto.
