Home on the Range

...where the rain hasn't shown any sign of abating. Just a little south and east of us, Toronto is drowning. In Brampton, we are soggy, a little leaky, but none of our cars are floating.

Last night, we were celebrating our 24th anniversary with two other couples who got married the same weekend (just not the same year). My hubby and I were just getting ready to load up the car and get on the road when the deluge began. In those two hours, more rain fell than pounded the earth during Hurricane Hazel in 1954. Of course, we didn't know that when we started out.

An hour and a half later, past numerous floating cars, rivers that used to be roads, and stoplights that were blank and useless, we arrived at our friends' place.

Typically, they were prepared. A BBQ and a gas stove and a huge collection of candles were all we needed. Not to mention each other.

Writers are always ready for a story. Last night provided a few, but I'm not going to share them. Yet.


I am so excited about Sweet Karoline's birth this Sunday. A whole bunch of my favorite people are gathering for her christening. You are all invited! Virtually or in person. TTYL - details right here.
