"Old man, funny looking boat, animals in twos, etc."

It's the monsoon season here in the Twin Cities.

If the unseasonably cool weather wasn't bad enough it's now coupled with rain in mass quantity. It goes from light drizzles to gales and there's hardly any dry spells inbetween.

I'm used to this sort of garbage weather from Seattle but the average Minnesotan I speak with is pretty bummed by this turn of events. The last time this sort of thing happened it was 40 odd years ago so it's far out of the memory of the locals.

My friends in warmer climes are all having a laugh at our weather which is to be expected. The new tires and wheels for the Miata are on hold indefinitely as it doesn't appear the warm season is going to be long enough to justify the expense. I'll just get out the scrub brush and polish the old ones.

Jack remains cheerful throughout the entire experience. He doesn't care either way about the weather. When I take him outside under a blanket he thinks it's a game of some sort. Go figure.
