It's been documented to be the rainiest fall in a century.
Yea, a century.
Rivers, streams, and waterfalls are popping up in places people have never seen before. Long-term residents are considering a move-of-address. And newcomers (like me) have to re-assure themselves that all this wet is worth it.
But then this little piece of news popped up and I had to say to myself, "Self, it's worth it".
Of course, a short vacation from the rain doesn't hurt to brighten one's dreary outlook. I'm headed to balmy Minnesota for a couple of weeks. Don't expect many postings before I'm back, but in the meantime, take a peak at the wet but pretty fall colors.
I promise to return from the trip with a few new recipes in my luggage.
