So, Is It a Good Idea to Take a Shower in a Thunderstorm?

Double Rainbow June 30 2014

No. I checked on Snopes.com, which is by the way a great site to see if the email you got about how Coke can melt asphalt is true or not (it’s not). I did take a very stressful shower. I was waiting for lightening to come out the toilet (Snopes says that has happened), or something equally alarming. 

I spent the better part of a very close thunderstorm in one of the laundry rooms in our development. It was fun, after the initial cracks of thunder and seeing lightening touching down. There are water filters in the laundry rooms where you can get “filtered” water for drinking. I wouldn’t do it if I was paid. The one by the laundry by us (We have our own washer and dryer, but we still enjoy a frequent snoop) is so filled with algae growth you cannot see through the tubing. A friend pointed out that the other laundry rooms have filters with covered hoses so they are cleaner. How??? In what possible way??? You just cannot see the slime growing because it’s behind an attractive grey hose. 

Our neighbor appears to be out to get us. He is 97 years old, and he rides his bike 10 miles a day. He seems like such a nice guy, but we found out this trip to FL that he has reported us to the office about FIVE times!!! For what, you ask??? For parking in front of our own house on the street. Apparently, the powers that be (PTB) changed the rules so that you can only have your car on the street for FIVE minutes!!!  I feel he’s in there with binoculars waiting for us to break the law. 

You know what I saw tonight after the first thunderstorm? Double rainbows. Very, very cool.

See you later, Alligator.
