All I remember from growing up around here was rain. Lots of rain. I liked rain. We haven't had a lot of rain as of late. In fact today it was 82 degrees out when I got in my car at 5 pm to come home. I really love leaving for work at 7:40 and arriving home at 5:30, as opposed to when we lived down there and carpooled... we'd leave at 7:10 and get home maybe 6, 6:15. Brutal.
I learned that the lake in our private park used to have river otters and eagles, but they ate so much of the bass that they were trapped and sent elsewhere. A shame.
