I heard thunder that lasted more than a minute today. I don't think I've ever heard that before. When I headed out to mail a DVD and get groceries, the sky was gray, but there wasn't any rain. By the time I got to the grocery shopping center, the rain went crazy! I went to the BK and got a Whopper Junior with Cheese and no pickles. If I were driving on the street, I would have pulled off to be safe. Fortunately, I could see a parking spot and while I ate, the rain calmed down.

Still rainy when I went in to the grocery and a bit more coming out and on the way home. I got a little wet folding open the rolling cart and bringing kitty litter in, but I'll dry off. I had a long grocery list yesterday and I realized it would be easier for me and only about $5 more to have most of it brought by Peapod on Thursday, but they don't have the brand of kitty litter we use. And I had to get Junie's buspar.

The rain has stopped, but it's still wet out there.

Last year a couple made a documentary about how the county around my city made rigid immigration laws and they backfired. The couple has been asked to take the documentary to Arizona.

Someone burned a homeless man in Virginia.

(Okay, raining again)

The WashPost asked readers to recommend books for Obama to read. The most-recommended was Atlas Shrugged, but one of the other highlights is Asimov's Foundation Series.

Yeah, that thunder was amazing. So long, so loud - windows rattling, floor shaking.

That law by PW County is one of many reasons we don't want to live there ever again, though we grew up there.

Manassas is better, but not as better as I'd like. I have too many constraints to move, though, starting with my income.

Although I love Asimov's Foundation Series, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged is one of my top 10 novels of all time. The technology isn't holding up as well as I could hope, but the characters are absolutely timeless and the message is as strong today as when she wrote it. Love it!
