Weekend by numbers: Rain, rain and more rain

1: Flash flood warning.

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.

Ok, that astronaut costume is fantastic. All I could muster this year for myself were devil horns and a pointed tail that hung down the back of my pants like a red turd.

Paints a lovely picture doesn't it.

Hope you had a fun Halloween, despite the wet. We managed to get trick-or-treating at least. The flooding by you seems astronomical. Wow. And that by a storm that had pretty much fallen apart!

Hey, just stopping by to say hello. I'm swamped and try to visit you when I'm at work, but you get blocked because they think you are a porn site. Weird.

Anyway, hope you are well.
