Journal 06-28-2015

Good morning or whatever part of the day is for you. Today is Sunday, June 28, 2015. The temperature is 67.5°F and the humidity is 77% at 4:45 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0 mph with gusts of 1.6 mph. It was cloudy when I stuck my head out. I saw only a few stars. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 89° (“much warmer than yesterday”) today. Oh, goodie

As we were leaving to go get lunch, I noticed the clouds looked folded in parallel lines across the sky—bad description, and I call myself a writer!—but it struck me that it looked like a storm formation. It was quite humid. Being originally from the Midwest, I couldn’t help but feel the hairs rise on the back of my neck. It was starting to look almost like tornado weather, but I didn’t say anything to California born and raised Mr. Siduri other than, “If weren’t for all the weather predictions saying no rain, I’d swear it was going to rain.”

I tried to take a picture, but it shows nothing. Drat.

We had lunch and all the while I kept watching the sky. On the way back, a few raindrops fell on the windshield. Mr. Siduri actually had to run the wipers once. And we had visible raindrops in the groups when we got home. So that was our rainstorm. But the sky looked weird for the rest of the day. Farther up the coast, they got heavier rain.

So, thanks, wolfgirl569 and oneoveralpha for sending us a bit of rain. Now if you try a little harder… But seriously—it was weird.

Gremlin doesn’t like the rain at all. He can’t stand for one drop to hit his fur. The moment it starts up, he retreats to his enclosure and doesn’t come out till it’s done. I wish we could keep him inside, especially on hot days.

We plan on going on a walking tour this evening of some older houses. It’s supposed to last one to one and half hours. I assume this will be just outside the houses. It should be interesting.

Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.

Off to write another day—

Writing schedule:

1. Spend an hour with Siegfried.

2. Review The Missing Chums.

4. Read and “The Superstitious Man’s Story” and review as time permits.

5. Continue looking for markets for “Dirt.”

I think we got most of the rain here--it rained like blazes on Friday and Saturday. Yesterday was gorgeous, though!
