A Steady Rain.

We have enough rain that driving more than 30 mph risks hydroplaning, and I had to stop suddenly on my way down Baker Hill for a tree across the road, then back up and try a different route—–but at least our kid didn't spend her first day of school overnight in a classroom, as I hear Newark Valley kids will do.

Meanwhile, Texas is burning to the ground. As PZ said in this week's letter: "Given that Governor Perry will undoubtedly give credit to God for whatever rain might fall in Texas someday, I’m fairly comfortable holding the opinion that the current drought there is a clear sign that He is currently a bit miffed that they’ve foisted the Lone Star state’s lone star on the rest of us. A sign’s a sign, after all. Don’t blame Jesus."
