MJJ and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Year

OK we get it. 2008 wants the Gold for record precipitation. Well, 2008 has it. You can stop trying.

I won't complain about the cool and the lack of screaming by Ontario Hydro to Turn it down or we'll have BLACKOUTS, though I will complain about the ohh guess what BLACKOUTS Hydro arranges the day before statutory holidays (last three, IIRC.) I will admit the rainy summer has led to a riot of flora rarely seen outside BC, which is very pretty, and a bumper crop of plums on the backyard tree which led to the s-i-l making a dozen jars of plum jam, and snails everywhere you look, which is doubtless good for the soil or something.

But the rain? The pressure headaches? The twinging arthritic knees?

You can stop. Any time. Thank you.
