Things a lazy man shouldn't plan to do...

So late this morning, after it had warmed up a bit, the boys and I took a nice walky and then headed down to the Lair for some nice pebble-sifting.

This wasn't my best idea ever. Three hours later I'd managed to clean almost two wheelbarrows full of small rocks. At this rate I'll have a flush toilet sometime around the beginning of the 22nd century.  But I don't see a lot of alternatives, because I've scarfed up all the free cinders that make sense - picking them up off the ground isn't any more efficient than what I'm doing.

Then it clouded up and started to rain again!  Whathehell?  It was supposed to rain Wednesday.  I wasn't too surprised that it rained yesterday.  But this morning the clouds cleared out right on schedule and I thought it'd stay sorta partly-cloudy and let me work.  Right now I'm actually stranded in the Scriptorium because it's really pouring.  If this keeps up the washes will run, though I saw no sign of water accumulating in the canyon this morning and it's been so dry the past few months that it shouldn't happen.  Still, it might.

So far the best that can be said for the spring is that it's not quite as unpleasant as the winter.

I hear you! Still can't believe I had a storm total (two days) of 8 inches of rain a few days ago. In Wyoming?

Darn near washed out my road... and I'm up high on a bluff! We had quite a bit of local flooding in town. Really weird.
