I drove into town to get some groceries. I watched the weather forecast and there was a nice window from about 11:30 till 3:00 when the rain would be light to non-existent. So heading down the road, all was well .... till I got about 1.5 miles away and it started pouring! I continued on, thinking that it would let up down the road. Not so.
It was raining so hard that I couldn't see the road, literally. I was on a dirt road, and the ditches on each side were running as high as the road with muddy water, so the ditches and the road were the same color. I absolutely could not tell what was road and what was ditch! I couldn't turn around because I didn't want to wind up in the ditch! So I traveled between 10-15 miles per hour right smack down the middle of the road, hoping I wouldn't meet another car! I didn't.
I had about six miles like that, then I came to a paved highway and the rain slowed just a little as I did. Wouldn't you know it? In town, it was still raining hard, although not the blinding rain I had experienced, so I dashed in to get my groceries, and when I came out, it had stopped.
One of my purchases was some dog food. I feed my kids Hill's Science Diet J/D which is good for their joints and coats. It has a lot of fish oil in it for that purpose (and it makes their breath stink like fish!), and after talking to my vet I decided to keep them on it although they are young to help avoid problems. I had forgotten that today was a holiday, so my vet was closed, and I didn't have enough to get through the weekend. I bought a small bag of Beneful at the grocery and at home, I mixed it with the J/D and filled the food bowl. Do I need to tell you what happened? Yep. immediately, the little mutts stuck their noses in the bowl and ferreted out every morsel of Beneful! Doggy candy, apparently! I mixed it so they wouldn't get upset tummies from the change of food, but they cancelled my good planning out! Little characters!
And for the record, If I got rain here while I was gone, it was just a smidgen! Isn't that how it goes? LOL!
