So here's the good news: It's raining. Hallelujah. A good sopped-in, all day, ground-soaking kind of rain.
More good news: Dad's house is coming along nicely. They already have it framed up. The siding and windows are due to be installed this week.
The bad news: It's not quite dried-in yet. Which means the inside framing of the house, including the sub-floor are getting wet. Very very wet.
Oh well. The garden needs the rain. The grass needs the rain. The ground needs the rain. The water table needs the rain. If only it waited one more day, though...
