They say today's the last day of the week-long rains we've been having, which totalled some nine inches. It's time for a respite, for something wetter this way comes again next week, they say.

According to the news reports, we've already had the third wettest season on record, and need only another inch to move into second place. LA has received more rain than Seattle this year!

Our lawn has so much water that the dogs don't go out for a walk as much as they go for a swim. They literally splash around out on the grass because of so much standing water. Even when it's not raining our driveway is a slick of water as the hill and yard continue to overflow through it.

Debris of dirt, sand, rocks, vegetation, garbage, etc., covers many roads where the water carried it and then receded. Buildings with flat roofs have collapsed, mudslides and sinkholes abound, train schedules are disrupted. Even the potholes have grown in size significantly near our place.

And in other news, it's my last day in ITR! I'll be turning in my ID badge and key, then carting my books and personal office effects over to my new space later this afternoon.

I am not expecting any kind of send-off or announcement of any sort (nevermind any kind of good-bye lunch like Shelley's co-workers receive, from what she says). If anyone does anything, it will certainly surprise me (pleasantly). But then, that's one big reason I'm leaving.
