Weekend by numbers: Rain, rain and more rain
1: Closed street.
1: Day without Internet access.
1: Neighbor's birthday party that was postponed due to the weather.
1: Friend's birthday party that carried on ... but was flooded.
3: Days of rain. Hard rain.
5: Inches of rain from the former Hurricane Rina on already-soaked land. (Um. Did you see that picture above? How does a 5-inch rainfall create a 7-inch-deep lake in a field?)
6: Halloween cupcakes.
(Yeah, those are Easter and Hanukkah decorations. I thought I had Halloween decorations but turns out I didn't. I don't know how I got a Hanukkah cupcake topper, but the Junebug loved the Star of David. The Man-cub loved his Valentine's Day heart. We love all the holidays.)
(OK, this cupcake I didn't make. It was a surprise from my husband. Which is why I had to make cupcakes the Man-cub could eat.)
13: Apollo mission that inspired my husband to create this costume for Halloween.
