40 days and 40 nights

Every year at this time of the year,
it seems like it rains 40 days and 40
nights. Use to be snow, but the past
couple years it has been rain.

Yesterday the King and I went to the
store. And then to the post office.
What an eye opener.

Now, the town of Kootenai is well
known for being wet ground. And
any rain leaves the ditches running.
But I was surprised to see the ditches
not only running. But running full blast.
Some of them overflowing.

Even on our street, the water was
boiling up in the ditches. We figured
it was a broken water pipe the way
it was going. So we called the sewer
dept. (it is in their ditch) and they
could tell if it was a broken water
main or just too much flow.

But they have their hands so full,
it went thru the night. Haven't
seen any one show up yet. But
they could have showed up during
the night.

Even the yards are about a foot or
more high. And there are lakes.
Near the car dealership on 200,
they had a large field full of water.

Water, water, everywhere.
Wonder when this will all
start going down.

Here, too. Great for the garden come July but really tricky between now and about the end June, huh?

Alas, I don't have a mate...If an ark is built, would having a flirt on board qualify?

Herb, I'd really want to know what your true expertise in flirting is; for instance, can you flirt with anyone? how 8 year old girls? 69 year old women? young mothers? hassled housewives? My contention is this: anyone can flirt with their certain kind, but cross-generational flirting is indicative of true flirting genius.
