Morning Decisions

My last post alluded to some damp Seattle winter days. It is no longer damp. We are wet, in a deep puddle.

The rain started in earnest Wednesday evening, and is has reached prolonged fire hose rates. Don’t ever ask if it could rain any harder, you are only tempting the fates.

My first weather based decision this morning was to take an alternate freeway due to reports of water over some lanes on my normal route. It was a relatively calm drive in the downpour until I reached the Plateau, where I work. At that point the rainfall came down double time, and I cranked the wipers up to 11.

Back in parking was hampered by the inability to see the parking lines through the puddles (no backup camera). But after 3 checks I stopped trying for perfection.

Once in the building I shook off the wet, and started about my day. After a bit, I reached for my coffee. Empty space….. It must still be in the car, a soaking distance away.

Plucked up my courage and went to get a cup from the kitchen pot.

      And the IT guy has been out, so no savior in the building! I worry more about spilling on paperwork and maps than the keyboard. Not to say I am not careful, and perhaps have gotten a bit careless. It has been a few years since I killed a keyboard.

    I will sing you an ode to the merits of backup cameras, now that we finally have one. They re like butter, but for cars in reverse.
