I figured I'd grab dinner at the food court at the mall next door. It had rained all the way down there and was still raining when I went in to eat.
When I came out, it was raining a bit more heavily, but not so badly that I didn't figure I should wait. And about 20 feet out the door, the deluge started. I was getting pretty thoroughly soaked, but at least I kept the book I was reading dry. (One must have priorities.)
As I got to the car and unlocked the door, my phone's alert system announced, "Heavy precipitation detected in your area!"
I'd say better late than never, but maybe not so much.
