- Not having it in the dictionary didn’t seem to matter to me. Meh.
Last night it rained and the wind blew at nearly 50 miles per hour. So for a few hours the rain drove in from the south horizontally. Horizontal rain can do some odd things. Odd things indeed. For instance…
My bathroom is on the south side of the house and the ceiling was wet along one rafter this morning. Never leaked before. I’ll be on the roof tomorrow looking at that while the turkey is cooking.
My wife’s car’s passenger side front seat is wet. Not sure how the rain got in but it’s a new problem to look at.
We had a couple of trees down behind the house but all were old and dieing. One is hung up in another tree and will need to come down before it kills someone.
At the high school this morning, one classroom was soaked where rain blew in through a new window that seems to be badly sealed. And a section of roof that was fixed this past summer is also leaking heavily.
Weird stuff! It’s not like it rarely rains here. We have had one of the wettest years on record. It seemed like it never stopped raining in August. And none of these problems showed up until 50mph wind and heavy rain for 5 hours.
I’m just glad it wasn’t snow!
