Plans Disrupted

Tonight was the dress rehearsal for the talent show. It was also the night of the Windycon meeting and, since I needed to talk to Gundo about what he wanted for Special Events, the right thing to do was to go down to the meeting. Sadly, Gundo was sick and not able to make the meeting, so although we talked about a number of things, I probably would have been more useful at the dress rehearsal.

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!"

No, really?

I'd say better late than never, but maybe not so much.
