Rain

A 4-post collection

Thursday, Day 1, Organised?

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! There's thirty total active cases, seventeen are in hospital and one of those is in the ICU. Australia's at 83% first vax, 64% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 71% first vax, and 54% fully vaxxed.

Miss Chaos is back to school, and it's nice to see those little squares on the health.gov site filling up. IDK about the red squares meaning fully vaxxed though. Someone else make the colour theory joke.

It's raining! On one hand, nice to have some rain. On the other hand, floods and maniacs.

I might be inspired to make a plains road map with hills and such.

In the news:

  • Surprise, surprise, freedom in NSW has lead to outbreak risks
  • Severe storms to hit Australia
  • China is ready for a world war 9_9
  • Some shithead went on a killing spree with a bow and arrow
  • Australia wants clean energy
  • Antivaxxer tries to use fake court documents. It FAILS
  • Beatles versus Rolling Stones back again
  • Mother hosts sex parties for teens. WTFF?
  • These common household items can kill you
  • Celebs quarantine differently. Shocker
  • Border rules change
  • AZ jab might be taken out of the offerings
  • 10YO nabs rare ocean photo
  • Service industry frontliners have things to say about Freedom Day

Onwards with story!

That high-pitched shrieking noise you just heard was me, dying of the cute.

All together now:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWW!!!!

Drainage

I discovered yesterday that the masses of water gathering around the uphill side of my house were due to masses of wet grass blocking the drains.

It was an education getting rid of that shit.

Mainly because the hound kept trying to fetch the sodden masses of grass as I chucked them onto the jungle lawn and then shaking off on me when he came back under shelter again.

Now that the grass is gone, the calf-deep puddles have drained away and

Poor dog

The hound has taken to racing up and down the yard in the rain. I have only just figured out why.

He’s looking for his people.

Unfortunately for the hound, his people - Mayhem and Chaos - are back at school. Until it floods out with all this fargnaxing rain.

So in order to keep him at least dry, I’ve had to keep the front door open so he knows I’m around. Poor thing’s
