Lovely Day

After three gorgeous days of no humidity or clouds, we get this. Before Hurricane Irene begins her journey up the I-95 corridor this weekend (and possibly messing with my Yankees/Orioles game on Saturday), we were greeted this morning by crashing thunder and buckets of rain, neither of which is particularly delightful. The best course of action on a day like this? “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers, cranked up to 11. It never fails.

Greenish Again

After a rather long period of nothingness in terms of precipitation, it’s been all rain here for the past week or so. It’s nice, because my grass looks like it should again. It’s terrible, because I have to actually resume my normal mowing schedule. And mowing the lawn is just a bad time.
