#4711: Well, I got the grass cut, anyway.

In the time it took me to go get gasoline and then cut the grass, that storm front moved the approximately 114 miles between Peoria and the Fungal Vale. That was an hour and forty minutes, about, so that storm is moving a bit faster than 60 MPH, and it's heading right for us!!! In fact, as I was getting the pusher out, the wind shifted and the clouds began looking ominous, and sure as shootin' as soon as I got inside and checked the weather radar--

I don't think I'm going to make it over to Og's place today, to get that steel, because I don't fancy operating electrical power tools in the rain. That irritates me, because that steel tubing is going to be the material I use to build the go-kart, and I'd sure like to get started on that project, but first I have to cut apart that shelving unit and haul home the tubing. The next chance I'll have to do that? Sunday afternoon, if Og is amenable. (And available.)

Overall I'm glad to have gotten the grass cut, though, because it had to be done before we got even more rain, especially since I'm not likely to have time for it before Sunday or Monday at the earliest.

...and this is my day off. But there is joy in simple chores, even so, and cutting the grass in eighty degree weather beats hell out of shoveling snow.

    Mrs. Fungus and I went to the zoo to look at their Christmas lights. It was quite nice. Hit an IHOP on the way home for a late dinner. In a little…
