Not a drop far. Rain? Lighting? I'm going to go out and hold a one iron over my head.

Not a drop far. Rain? Lighting? I'm going to go out and hold a one iron over my head. And let me know if you know where "Globe township" is.

Thanks, R_I. I know exactly where Globe is. In fact, I was through there today. HWMNBN still haunts these boards after what, two years? He must be proud -even if not germane anymore.

What am I, The Dave Matthews Band?

Rain to the north of me, storms to the south. Here I am, stuck in the middle again.

Another New Mexico style thunderstorm here: much lightning, 10 drops on a brick. At least it has cooled off. I'm watching the rerun of THE WAR. I'm reminded that my father was a great fibber: "I didn't do anything in the war."
