Nine Incher

After the most brutal summer in history around these parts, we have had a mild, yet wet winter. I don't know if our low temperature got into the teens, and January was the second wettest since the weather folks started keeping records.

Last night was an extremely stormy night, with a cold front blowing thru around 9pm. We had a spectacular lightning display, high winds, and hard rain. I was awakened several times during the night by thunder, wind,  and more rain.

I turned on the TV early this morning to see if there was any storm damage or flooding in the area and the sound woke up Ms. Duck.

"How much rain did we get?" she asked.

"Between eight and nine inches, I replied.

"Hmmm, reminds me of you," she said, giving me a wink.

I may have made that last line up : )


  1. Duck, you are to be congratulated. Either on the whole eight to nine inches thing, or your superlative sense of imagination.

    So whichever way the old feller hangs, congrats.

  2. "I may have made that last line up : )"

    Smart money is definitely on a fabricated end to story!
