Why I'm warm and dry instead of wet

To paraphrase Yogi Berra, it got late early out there.

He was talking about a particular ball park where it seemed the sun got into players' eyes earlier than it seemed to happen in other ballparks, thanks to the way the park was aligned; but I'm talking about darkness from rain.

Today wound up being a good day for work to have a short day. Last week and yesterday we worked 10-hour shifts, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; but the higher-ups at the bindery let us know before lunch today that we'd finish at what's usually end-of-shift, 3:00. And even with taking a scenic route home and stopping to get gas for my car, I got home just before 4:00. A fair amount (not yet a huge amount) of rain, it turned out, was following me. Had we worked until 5:00, I'd be heading home in that. I'm glad I'm not. I empathize with all y'all who are.

Though now, as of 5:01, it's lightening up. Will it change in five minutes? It could.

Hey, I'm allowed the occasional boring update.
