Rainy Day Musings

It has been raining non-stop here since last night. Oh the joys of stormy, muddy, nasty weather! I have to say, there's nothing quite like waking up to the lovely serenade of a tornado siren! My morning started off to me waking up to a huge crash of thunder/lightning and then hearing a tornado siren. Not plesant when you're not quite awake yet! ;) I attempted to take the puppy for a walk after I woke up, but I thought the poor thing was going to float away since there was water backed up all the way to the entrance of my apartment door!(That made things interesting!)Thankfully the weather has died down a little now and the tornado warning is gone for the time being. I'm hoping it stays that way!

Pictures from today's rainy weather! (I wish I had thought to take pictures before the water started to subside, but I forgot. Water was flooded everywhere this morning! Thankfully, these pictures are for a little while ago after most of the water started to drain down.)

 The view from my patio after the "flood waters" finally decided to drain down!

The "river" outside of my apartment complex this afternoon. (I wish I had pictures of it from this morning- EVERYTHING was coverd in water! Now it's draining down thankfully)

The walkway to my apartment after the water FINALLY drained down a good bit. This morning there was standing water up to my calves!
Hello Muddy Weather!

I appologize to my faitfhful readers for being lax in posting this week. Things have been busy around here! After an insane week filled with non-stop studying, I passed my RT 201 final this week and finished up my last night of my first clinical rotation on the floor yesterday! Monday I go to class to sign for my grades and get the order for my next clinical rotation site  (I'll be in the ICU!) I'm excited!! After that on Monday, I'm supposed to be going out that night to celebrate with Jack (It's the 1yr anniversary of our first date :))  I have a few days off of class after Monday, and then start RT301 on the 10th and my next clinical rotation in the ICU on the 11th. Exciting!!! :)

In other news, the sweet new puppy, Ranger, is growing like a weed! He's 12 weeks old now and is most definitely going to be a big dog when he's full grown! He is soo sweet! He was supposed to have his puppy class today, but we opted not to go  since the parking lot at my apartment complex is currently flooded ;).  I also discovered today that my one of my fancy goldfish laid eggs in their tank today. I had to scoop out the Amazon Sword plant they decided to lay them on and put it in a tank by itself so that they wouldn't get eaten. I'm hoping the eggs hatch eventually- I'd love some cute new little goldfish babies! I have no clue what they will look like if they do hatch as I have more one type of goldfish hybrids! (I have 5 - 2 ryukin, 1 oranda, 1 red telescope, 1 fancy).


  1. aww... new little fishies!! so glad you didn't get washed away, sweet friend!! love you!

  2. I hope they hatch Annie! It's still too early to tell if they will or not! (right before they hatch they turn a darker color-they haven't yet so we'll see! Takes about 4 days)

    I'm glad you didn't get washed away eithor girl! Talk about some stormy weather!! Love ya!
