This Is Supposed To Be The Desert

Thunderstorms and torrential rain today.
According to weather statistics, May averages three days of rain during the month.
So far, I don't know if we've had three days without rain this month.

The weather here today is similar to that where sjonsvenson lives. But where he lives, there's good beer and great chocolate. Where I live, there's rain and rattlesnakes.

I wonder how practical it would be to move to Belgium?

On an unrelated tangent: I should update my LJ user icons.

Yippee! It's a Teepee! Or is it a Tipi?

This is the project I've been working on for the past several weeks. No, it's not my tipi. I'm assisting a neighbor. By "assisting," I mean "doing most of the work" since the neighbor went back to his out-of-state home. Once it's done, he will be renting it out through a number of vacation rental web sites.

While it looks done, there are a lot of small, tedious, time-consuming, and exhausting steps before it is actually done.

Steps that are difficult to complete in the rain.
