It was slow coming and thought it would never materialize. It started off Sat. with just a few sprinkles . Sunday it thundered and had lightening off to the northwest then a hard down pour that made it hard to see across the street then it was over in about 5 min. Yesterday it started off slow again but kept coming until mid afternoon when it let loose it poured for quite some time till evening. Today it started raining about 1pm as I was leaving a restaurant where I meet my friend Lucy for lunch. It just drizzled until I pulled into the carport and then it came down. It just drizzled on an off for the rest of the day in my area.
But heavy flooding took place northwest of me and actually pushed 40 railroad cars off the railway. What a mess they have to clean up now. At first they didn't know if any of the cars had hazardous materials on them but later found none.
Then of course you get the dummy's who insist on driving into the washes and have to be rescued. One lady thought she was entering the Freeway but missed the turn because it was raining so hard she couldn't see. Now how many of you would continue to drive if you can't even see where your going. I surely would pull over and wait. They do announcements on TV all the time about this but no people will still not follow this direction.
I have made some progress in healing but this sure was a bad hit of the Calcium decease and it has been tough but at least the pain has subsided pretty much. So it was nice to get out and have lunch with my friend.
Good Night All
