If you've watched the news you know a big part of the US got soaked over the weekend - and Lexington got its fair share.

Saturday I needed to run a few errands, so I put on the new rain boots I bought last week so I could muck around in the mud at the horse park and gave them another work out.  My boots and I got the grocery shopping and done and headed home.  As I turned a corner I felt the car hydroplane and skid back and forth in the two lanes.  Luckily there weren't any cars near by, so aside from a pounding heart all was good.

This experience, however, did make me want to stay out of the rain and off of the roads the rest of the weekend; so rather than the weekend I'd planned I stuck a lot closer to home.  I'm am determined to explore this part of the US - but the weather seems to be against me.  My first visit here it seemed to snow every weekend - this visit - heavy rain seems to be the story.  Hopefully next weekend I'll see a bit of sun and I can get out of town.  In the meantime, here's hoping everyone affected by the floods is okay.

I thought I'd used up all of my rain songs last week - but I found a great new one over the weekend - so here is Shiny Toy Guns with "Rainy Monday."
