What do Springfield, MO and Iowa have in common? We’re both dealing with flooding. Yesterday, we received a record 3.88″ of rain in about 6 hours which lead to all kinds of pandemonium here in the city. Of course, we have water in our basement. As I was watching the deluge I thought perhaps I should roll up the carpets and prepare for the worst. I was all excited when nothing was happening until I saw a tiny trickle of water coming in under the stairs. Crap. That could only mean the worst was to come and I did. I finally decided I wasn’t going to stay around here watching the water so I did what I do best: I went shopping. The highlight of my day (besides the two beers I had at Happy Hour) was scoring a gorgeous black linen tunic for 75% off. It was one I’d tried on about 6 weeks ago and loved so much I almost paid full price for it.
This morning I have to model in a fashion show (why do I let myself get talked in to these things) then I’ll be coming home to work in the basement. Thankfully, Steve’s being really sweet and is going to do a bunch of wet basement work before I get home. Hope your day is sunny and dry!
