Wiggling....

.... a ferocious rain hit a few hours ago... the Wife and I had just gotten back from having lunch at the Fox and Hound in Chattanooga, and the weather had been beautiful.... but this storm, well, I'm just glad I wasn't driving when it started... standing in the living room, I tried to take some photos of it... at times, the mist created by the fat raindrops hitting the driveway was caught in a gust of wind... creating little sideways walls of water that were pushed across the lawn... flying horizontally and then upwards before smashing into the stand of trees to the right of the house... it was pretty impressive to watch...

... but now the Sun is back out.. everything is still slick with rain, and the leaves are still dripping... the sky is bright and you can taste the humidity in the air... you can smell the dampness in the grass and gravel... it's strange to see the world this wet with the Sun beaming so...

... one thing was noted, though.... tomorrow I'll be cleaning my gutters.... after two minutes of violent rain, they were overflowing... but damn, I hate cleaning gutters.... maybe I can find some way to wriggle out of it... or wiggle even.... wiggle or wriggle... wait... which one is the real word?... I'm so confused..... but y'all get my point... I'll try to wriggle/wiggle... wiggle, wiggling.... wriggle, wriggling... wow...

.. in other news, I finally bought a replacement camera for the one that went MIA at the Wreckyll in Jekyll... and boy howdy, it's a sweetie... there will be no losing this puppy... trust me, it's about the size of my fist... the other one wasn't much bigger than a credit card.... it really was a tragedy that I lost it though... there were some serious blackmail photos in it... I could have made a bloody fortune if I hadn't misplaced it...

... probably serves me right, really... losing it was probably pre-ordained by some cosmic force.... after all, blogmeets and cameras just aren't meant to go together.... anyway, I'm off to get to the bottom of this wiggle/wriggle thing... you guys have a good day...

Bullshit So Far

Awesome...the ferocious rain...like someone pulling a lever to open and close the sky...in Ireland it's the "farmers rains"... washes off the kernals and brings out he new leaves and leaves a wonderful "green" smell!

Well, blogmeets and cameras might not meant to go together, but sometimes, the outcome really is... entertaining :-D Ah, the sacrifices we make for our weblogs...
