...and people are using even less logic than normal.

There are fires all over SLO, at the moment, and at least three of them have been caused by vehicles. Two on the exact same stretch of road, for the exact same reason.

People. People, listen. If your car can't make it up a hill, don't try to drive it up a hill.

And when it catches on fire because you tried to make it climb said hill, do not pull over into the dry, flammable brush on the side of the hill.

This is not rocket science.

Finally!

It's raining!

After an entire summer without much rain, at all, it's finally pouring!

Last night had some glorious, house-shaking thunder, as well. :D

For the last few days, I've been trying to draw, and while I have been able to, I've only managed little 30-40 minute chunks at a time. Why?

Because it's so damn humid, I feel like I'm in a sauna.

It's not hot! It maxed out at 80 today, and maaaaybe got to 70 in the house. But it's humid beyond belief. And you don't know annoying until you can't hold a pen for how much your hands are sweating.

*sigh*

C-c-c-cold!

Or, Wherein the MINI Narrowly Escapes Hail Damage.



As soon as I pulled the cover on, this happened.

D'oh

Squeeky is a true Californian. He slept through the earthquake.

My mom had run out of the bathroom as soon as the shaking started, looking for my dad and the cats, and Squeeky was sound asleep on the couch.

Everyone here knows that I love my car. I wouldn't trade her for anything, even though I sometimes joke about junking her, or selling her, or the host of other things that one can do to old, rusting German iron.

But there is one time of the year I honestly wish I had a new car: the rainy season.

Voodoo's windshields leak. Her doors leak. Her quarterwindows leak. (Oddly enough, her sunroof is watertight. Figure that one out.) When it rains, I have to cover her, else I get inches of water on the floor. Her cover is fabric -- one of those breathable, yet waterproof ones that supposedly allow the metal to wick moisture away and prevent rust. And, because it's fabric and not say, plastic, it does hold water. A lot of it. The cover is of a fair weight all on its own. When it's full of water, it likely weighs 40 or 50lbs. I absolutely hate lugging that thing back and forth from the car to the house. I get wet. The carpet in the house gets wet. Kiffies are very displeased, sir.

Should my parents ever come through on their plans to buy kiffies a new car, I might have to get a sort of timeshare going on with them: I'll keep Voodoo in the summer, but when winter comes around, she's parking in their garage to wait out the rain and the hail indoors.

In other news, at least Voodoo is surefooted in the rain. I have no risk of ending up like this poor breadloaf:

One year, I'll see snow -- real snow.

Not machine-made stuff, not hail, not frost on the car or the lawn. Real snow.

Just... not this year. :/
