New year, same old RAIN...
I know this is Oregon, and complaining about rain in the winter is par for the course, but seriously, this is starting to get a little NUTS...

You see, what Oregonians typically call "rain" is a light, cool, mist-to-drizzle, that comes and goes all day for a few days at a time.  Yeah, it's overcast, but aside from that, you can basically ignore it.  You don't need an umbrella or a raincoat, and two minutes after you enter a building, you're totally dry and don't even remember if it's raining or not.

But for the last month, we have had honest-to-goodness, Houston-style *RAIN* -- serious, soak-you rain (or snow, when it was cold enough) -- almost every fricken' day, and it's getting old.

My work-hell week starts Monday (when the Appworx consultant shows up), and I really don't need to be dealing with flooded roads and soggy clothes right now...

But for now, at least I'm home and not driving, so there's that.  :)

Happy New Year, everybody...  With Obama taking office, 2009's just GOTTA be better than 2008 was...

(God.  2009.  This is the FUTURE.  I'm OLD.  How the fuck did THAT happen...?)

The ground, she is pretty saturated, yeah. grillghod is off this week and we'd talked about going over to the coast but meh.

The sun could come out for an hour or two and it wouldn't hurt my feelings at all.
