Aaah...are you guys having those Evil Days where you can see a few clouds, and you start hoping they'll stick together and make a big cloud that will rain? Or is it the ones were you can see a perfectly good rainstorm going on...10 miles away...while at home it's still bone dry?
I still remember the drought of '98, which I understand has been totally eclipsed by the drought of 2010-11, I was living in BCS at the time (GIG EM) and what I never could figure out was how the heck the air could be THAT sticky and wet, without it raining, ever. Still a mystery to me.
I was 10 minutes into my ride this morning, after spending 15 minutes carefully laying out a big string of cavaletti for trotting stifle exercise, and it started sprinkling. I could see blue sky all around so I reckoned it would buzz off, but no. It was my turn to be under the one raining cloud in a 30-mile radius. I did get 2 passes through those cavaletti before my tack started to get wetter than I wanted it to. I'll burn a candle and send some Rain Ju-Ju down south. Or, better, I'll try to drag it down with me when I fly in for that wedding.
