I woke up with rain beating on the roof this morning. Since then, it's been fairly steady. Looking at the radar, there are small thunder cells coming up from the SW. Other than the humidity, this is not too bad since it is soaking the forest without washing everything away. I'm staying inside since there's little I can do outside on a day like today.
Ragnar finally showed up last night. I hadn't seen him in a couple of days. Moved the china cabinet and hutch, but he was not in his nest. Went through all the closets. Searched the supply room and family room downstairs.
I was beginning to think he had gotten out despite the ferret guard on the door. Being blind, he wouldn't have lasted long. However, it turns out he had climbed up inside the couch and has made himself a home in there. I was vastly relieved. Doesn't bother me that he likes the couch, so do it.
Got my ammo I ordered. It was all ammunition that would never be sold here so I have to order it from somewhere. Each box was $15.95, and I ordered four boxes. Shipping was $18.00. So that comes to $81.80. That's $20.45 a box. Not cheap, but a welcome addition to my on hand supply for the particular weapons that require it. At least I didn't have to pay tax to Atlanta.
As I write this, I am listening to the scanner. Three tourists in an SUV managed to go over the cliff on the old forest service road I use to cut across to the lake. They got too near the edge, and went right on over. Rescue is en route, as well as a State Trooper. If a Trooper is going to the wreck instead of or in addition to a Sheriff's Deputy, then somebody is either dead or injured. People think that because they bought themselves a four wheel drive, they can just toodle out into that forest and all will be well. Often, it doesn't go that way.
