Technically, the rain we’re getting is probably not from Irene. The hurricane, I mean. (As opposed to blaming any actual person for the rain.)
I say probably… in that Irene is not expected to start ruining our weather until Sunday, and it’s only Thursday.
But, I dunno. Maybe she’s an early starter. There’s clearly been a huge barometric shift in the last few days, because I’m on day three of the kill-me sinus headache that isn’t allergies, infection, or impending illness. Caffeine, cold meds, decongestants, allergy meds, even migraine meds … I’ve run through the whole arsenal. Three-extra-strength-something combined with Vaporub-on-my-forehead (in sheer desperation; what could it hurt really?) just barely make the slightest, maybe-I-could-sleep-for-four-hours-a-night kind of dent in it.
About 10 this morning the sky suddenly went black, and around 11:30 the rain came. And maybe it’s not because of Irene. Or, maybe Irene got here early.
Whatever… as long as she takes the headache with her when she goes.
