RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY . . .

AND DON'T COME BACK SOME OTHER DAY, Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

With a thunderstorm nearly every day, Lake Junebug is quite full. I would suggest that you make your reservations for the Lake Junebug Resort, but it doesn't stop raining long enough to do anything.

I was out gallivanting around this afternoon when today's storm started. Going from a store to my car, I got soaked. I looked as if I had taken a shower with my clothes on.

Before yesterday's storm, it was somewhat dry just long enough for Franklin to roll in the muck in the backyard. His new name is Stinky.



According to the forecast, the weather system that's with us now is supposed to hang around and get worse by the weekend. I don't know how it can get worse, but anything is possible.

Lappie is fine now. She has no complaints about the duct tape holding her together.

I continue to apply for jobs, so I'm not blogging regularly. Previous interest from employers resulted in an interview for a job that I could have done in my sleep. Of course, I didn't get it.

The search continues.


Infinities of love,

A Soaked Janie Junebug


Lake Junebug looks a lot like this photo that I took after Hurricane Matthew visited us last year:

  1. Rained on us pretty much all day Saturday when we went camping. We were forced to drink beer.

  2. Everyone seems to be getting strange weather. Here in Portland it's reached a hundred and the rest of the week will be in the nineties. It isn't usually that warm.

  3. It's rained here every day, too, and I notices tonight that my George has a pungent dog odor thanks to getting damp so often. P.U.!!

    1. At least the dogs don't mind their odor.

  4. We have had a boatload of rain too, but my yard is sloped so no standing water here__yet. I am keeping my eyes open in case someone is building a big boat and gathering animals.

    1. I asked my son to get started on the ark.

  5. OMG! You do not need any more rain. How can the dog go outside to do their business in a lake?! Best of luck with the job applications. Hang in there. :)

    1. The dogs splash through the lake and head for the highest ground in the yard. They're quite brave about it.

  6. May you get showered with job offers, Janie.

    1. That would be a better way to get soaked.

  7. Hi Janie - looks horrid ... we're about to get another deluge ... take care and dry out - and good luck with those interviews ...cheers Hilary

  8. Aww, poor Stinky! I know how he feels. We've had way too much rain here since about the middle of March..finally had four days of sunshine early last week, and then the flash floods came back. Monday was just miserable, it rained all day (possibly because I suggested on Sunday I'd take my daughters to the park) The girls havent been outside much this year, it's too darn wet! Maybe we'll book that trip to Lake Junebug next year ;)

    "Previous interest from employers resulted in an interview for a job that I could have done in my sleep. Of course, I didn't get it." Ugh...I can relate to this one, too. I know I should look for another job, but my fragile mental state cant handle not getting one. So I dont bother. Maybe next year.

    Hope you find a good job soon. Stay dry!

  9. Isn't it a damn shame we need a job, Janie? And as for the rain, don't tell me you looked like this: click!

  10. His eyes say it all!
    I do love a good storm (I like listening to rain and thunder) but not for too long. Sunny days make me happy and productive. So hopefully the rain goes away soon! I'll send you some of my Latvian sunshine :)

  11. The weather is not good. I must write a post about a Texan enjoying Ohio weather. Trump does not get it.

  12. Janie, we even had 5 inches in Texas, which causes all kinds of issues.

  13. It rained pretty much all day here too. Warm greetings!

  14. Our weather is SO weird these days.
    Hope you find the perfect job!

  16. It rained everyday that we were in Orlando and St. Augustine. Though it didn't last too long each time.

    Wishing you luck on the job front.

    1. I've wondered about people who are on vacation in Orlando. It's about three hours from here, so the weather can be completely different. But you went to St. Augustine and you didn't tell me? I would have taken you out to lunch. St. Augustine is pretty close.

      Delete
    2. I wasn't sure how close you were, and it was sort of an unplanned trip. Which can be the most fun. I mean we planned to take the trip, but besides Orlando we didn't know what we were doing. Next time we will for sure have to meet up.

  17. The weather here in the UK today has been wet. Non stop heavy rain all day long. But then, it is the UK so not that unusual.

    I hope you find the perfect job.

    1. We don't have heavy rain all day. Instead, we have one huge thunderstorm each day that can list thirty minutes or three hours.

  18. We could use a little of that rain in Maine. It's been pretty dry lately.

    1. I'd be glad to send you Lake Junebug.

  19. Great to hear Lappie is working again. Sorry about the job, but you will find something soon.I know it. Wish you could send the rain my way. We're struggling with drought here in Cape Town;) Stay safe.

    1. You have a drought; I have a flood. Why can't everything be equal?

  20. I'm impressed. It's been a while since I've heard (or read) anyone using the term "gallivanting," but not quite as long as it's been since I've seen anyone use "calooping!"

    1. Calooping? I tried Googling that and couldn't find anything that made sense. Willy Dunne Wooters says I go out gallivanting around. Someone else I dated said I went out runnin' the streets. It sounds as if I have a wild life.

  21. It's been raining here for months but the past week or so has been drier than usual. Perhaps all our rain has traveled to your area. I didn't complain a lot and that could've done it. Sorry. Well, not really. But I am Canadian...so...sorry :)

    1. I louve Canadians. I want to be Canadian.

  22. What a sweet picture of your pup! Looks a tad guilty, doesn't he ...

    That is far too much water for a back yard. It's been very dry here; the ground was like a rock ... until Sunday, when we had a fifteen-minute deluge where we couldn't see across the street, followed by two days of steady rain. Overall, it's been better here than in many places, such as your neck of the woods. I hope you get some sunshine - and a job - SOON.

    1. He looked pissed off, which is rare for him. He doesn't like being called Stinky. The dogs have been brave about running through the lake to find a place to pee. Penelope even peed in the lake this afternoon.

  23. Good luck with your job search, Janie. Being turned down after an interview can be so demoralizing. But you just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Been there ~ not as long ~ but it's no fun. Fortunately you have kept your sense of humor. Glad to hear that Lappie is keeping it together! Have a good one! Maybe you should start gathering wood for an ark or a least a raft!
