It's raining chickens and lizards!  
Yes my dears, it rained so much overnight that I cannot get my car out of the driveway. It is STILL raining and the news is telling me that it will continue to rain for the next number of hours. Some sort of stalled weather cell or something. The thunder and lightning woke me at 3a.m. and knocked our power out 3 times. Beautiful weather, yes.

So now I'm home and stranded and not sure if the power will stay on long enough to mess around on the computer. But I thought I'd just share while I had the chance.

The boss just called. That knucklehead tried to drive in to work from her side of town! She called to tell me that she received a call from the office telling her to "turn her car around and go back home!" Apparently they aren't letting people off the 610 loop over on that side of town. Nice.

Anyway, I'll quit boring you with my rained-in day.

I'll try to post up my concert pics this afternoon, when I'm sure I won't lose power again.

Talk to me people. I need company.

Wow, that's a lot of rain! Is your house in danger of flooding? If it is, get to higher ground. I will die if I lose my Shonna.

Wow. I've NEVER heard of so much rain, work gets cancelled!

Hope your day off is a nice one, though :o)

Well we had Tropical Storm Allison a couple of years ago. It flooded EVERYTHING! Now we are all super duper paranoid. Also, we have bayous that flood like crazy, and cause the sidestreets to be impassible. So I get to stay home.

Go me.

Crap. That sucks :(

*hugs tight*

Question, do you get paid for days like this when it's impossible to get to work and it's not your fault that you miss a day?

Sorry randomness in my curiosity :)

Yes, it did suck...and the weather continued to be rainy all day. I spent most of my day watching people try to get around in boats and sloshing through their water-logged homes. I feel blessed that I didn't have to deal with any of that.

Yes, I get paid anyway. I'm a salaried employee, not hourly. I don't get docked for days missed, even when I take them off deliberately.

I didn't? I'm so silly sometimes. I'll go do it right now! XD
