Hanna Storm

That could be a nice Jackson Pollock painting or a close-up view of a carpet stain, but it's the weather radar for my little slice of Heaven on Saturday afternoon. Hanna moved through and screwed up an otherwise nice day off. Funny how often these things come on the weekends, especially when you figure there should be a 1 in 7 chance and all.
I don't mind when it snows on the weekend, because I'd rather take my time and shovel the crap on my own time rather than have to hurry so I can get to work on time. Rain, on the other hand, doesn't require any maintenance and just fouls up a day when I could be doing something more productive than this or staring out the window watching the weather go by.
The only good thing is that I just got the DVD's of season 2 of Heroes and season 4 of The Office in the mail, so I have plenty of entertainment options.
They goofed up the forecast (naturally) and it didn't start raining until early in the afternoon. I had already decided against the usual Saturday morning bike ride with our group, so maybe I'm just bitter. I did manage to get to the gym this morning, I usually bike there, but because of the weather I drove, and moving the car when I otherwise wouldn't bugs me too.
So it's off to warm up the TV and plant my butt for some indoor entertainment.

We had rain and lightning and apparently power outages here, but that was early in the morning. The rest of the day eventually cleared up. More rain tomorrow though!
