... unless things change for the better later. Right now it's simply pissing down rain:
Which made quite the mess in my bathroom as I left my roof vent open last evening. What a wonderful way to begin my day: mopping up the floor and wiping down EVERY horizontal surface in the water closet. (sigh)
Well, I'm exaggerating about beginning my day... as I've been awake since 0215 hrs this morning... so the mopping up wasn't my actual start. Close enough, tho, and a major PITA.
So now I have a decision to make... will it be back to bed or another pot o' coffee?
Update, noonish: I went back to bed and it was PRIME sleeping conditions... which is to say it rained all morning and was cooler than the proverbial cucumber both indoors and out. We GOT some rain, Gentle Reader, and I am refreshed.
It's still sprinkling as we speak and this is what the NWS has to say about the situation...
Showers and thunderstorms will continue moving north and east through late morning. In Roosevelt County...strong thunderstorms near Elida...Dora...Causey...Pep...and Milnesand will move north toward Portales...Clovis...Oasis State Park...and across highways 60 and 70 and state roads 209 and 268. More thunderstorms near Broadview... Bellview...and Grady will move north and east across Interstate 40 from Tucumcari to the Texas line...or from mile Post 330 to mile Post 370. Expect gusty winds to 40 mph...lightning...hail...and downpours as these storms move through. Downpours will fill arroyos and ditches and may block low water crossings...with poor visibilities in heavier showers. Elsewhere...expect local gusts... occasional lightning...and rainfall up to several tenths of an inch in scattered showers.I'm not sure if the climate will support an outdoor Happy Hour today but I don't much care. In or out, makes no nevermind!
