rain and death

yes, i drove over falls lake on saturday and there is no lake there no more. just muddy weeds and a little stream running through them.

today there is a 30% chance of rain, and tomorrow there is a 60% chance of thunderstorms. i sincerely hope i am conscious through some of this promised rainfall. a thunderstorm in the evening while i am home would be a super-duper big bonus.

work today was uuuuugggghhhhh and then i went to mom's to get the rest of the attic stuff.

a teacher at my high school died last week. i did not know her, but i know many people who did. she was one year younger than i am. her classroom was shared by the husband of one of my co-workers, and another co-worker was also friends with her. my mother thinks she probably taught one of my brothers. at dinner tonight we ran into someone who had been to the service today. she said there were about 1500 people there. they bussed kids from the school over to the church where the service was held.

my grandmother was a high school teacher. when we'd run errands around town, i was always amazed at how many people knew her. she knew everyone. this is what happens when you're a teacher.
