It poured, she was running in ankle-deep water and developed the largest blisters of her life, on the bottom of her feet.
October here is usually hot and we're in the middle of fire season. I feel very blessed this season because maybe we have skipped the "fire storms" for now. My firefighting husband may not go on a strike team and Danger Ranch may have escaped the danger of fire that's always threatening our little forests and meadows.

I wish it had rained like this during the summer and then I could blame the sky for all the cats and dogs. And today, it was one of those days "The devil was beating his wife." That's what happens when it's raining hard and the sun is just a'shining away. Now, the rain is just beating on our metal chimney like the stupid woodpecker that thought it was a redwood tree. I can't even begin to describe the sound that reverberates our whole house and neighborhood. We don't like woodpeckers, they make holes in our house. The chimney is metal, but our house is redwood.

Poof! Crack! Sizzle! Oh no, here we go again! Lightning and thunder at the same time!
It has just occurred to me, since it's been a very, very long time since we've had this kind of storm. There's really been no thunderstorms like this since I was in grade school. Snappin' turtles would've just starved to death hanging on to something. They'd all just shrivel up and die. They are extinct.
