Sigh. Last summer Texas had droughts. This summer Texas has torrential downpours. I feel kind of trapped because of it. I’ve been spending wwaaaaaaayyy too much time cooped up in this house. Exactly one year ago I was traveling around China, doing whatever I wanted. This picture is from when I was on the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall in Beijing … and spent the day with a random Spanish guy named Julio (who I met on the chair lift). Ah, that was a fun time.
No such fun-ness here. Thursday I didn’t go to work because there’s no way I was going to drive half an hour into downtown Houston through heavy rain with thunder. I’m not a good driver to begin with, and getting on the highway when it’s raining heavily, I’m freaking out, and other drivers are freaking out … it ain’t pretty. Thankfully no flooding near where I am. It’s just … ugh.
