Before leaving for the park, I checked the radar app to see when the rain would be heading in. My weather app forecast the rain to arrive later this evening or very early Thursday morning. Throughout the day, guests and volunteers said their apps or the news offered a rain arrival time of anywhere from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
So far, no rain has shown itself in Kettering. We had awful dark clouds rolling above, accompanied by thunder, but no drops.
I walked in the front door at 1:55 PM, took off my park shirt, opened the door to the deck for the dogs to come and go, and threw myself into my bed. I woke at 4:00 PM, just in time to feed the dogs, and went right back to bed until 6:10 PM.
It’s now 8:10 PM and I am on the deck for the remainder of the evening, or until rain arrives. My Walmart groceries were delivered by 7:40 PM and I am loving my quiet time. I have Thursday and Friday off and am trying to come up with some fun activities that are hopefully places to explore that are not my regular haunts.
In the meantime, I’ve things to research and a project proposal to tidy.
