Rained Out

Today's SpaceTime Theater rehearsal was called on account of rain. samwinolj, Bonnie, Steve, and Jerry did manage to get here before the streets surrounding us were flooded, but daddy_guido and dek9 were coming from the south and found that they couldn't get across Oakton St. without a canoe. daisy_knotwise took most of the cast to the basement to sort out props while Sam and I kept the kids entertained and watched the water rise in the field behind our house.

After we called rehearsal, we tried going north to Photo's for lunch, since Sam had decided that the best way for them to get back home was to go south on the Tri-State, given the reports from Greg and Dawn. Unfortunately, the parking lot there was flooded and the restaurant closed, so they all just gave up and went home. Gretchen, Katie, Julie, and I proceeded east to Randhurst, grabbed lunch at Steak & Shake, and then I ran into the Home Depot to pick up the lithium grease to lubricate our shower door when I repair it later this afternoon.

In the meantime, I just replaced the keyboard on my HP laptop in about half an hour, which was substantially better than I'd feared. (I'm typing on it now.)

And now to make sure Katie never gets to touch this keyboard again. :)
