Stinkin’ Rain

One of the great things about Phoenix is the weather. It sounds cliche to say, “Well it’s a dry heat” but it is. I’d much rather be in 110 with no humidity, than 90 with 80%.

But let me tell you why I’m not a big fan of the rain.

First there’s my dog Pepper. She’s a beagle, super cute, and about 10, maybe 12 years old. I adopted her from the pound about 5 years ago, and she’s made a great addition to the family.

Now my house has a doggie door, which Pepper learned right away, which was great. Then after a while, I started noticing puddles on my tile after a night of rain. These just aren’t little spots either, they’re small lakes forming in my living room. Good times to be sure.

Well I can only theorize that she doesn’t like getting wet, or doesn’t like getting her paws muddy or something, because she won’t go outside when it rains. I end up getting a bucket full of bleach and hot water to clean it up, so my house smells like the Cactus Park pool for the next week. Good times.

Then there’s my other problem, the car situation. See I build custom cars and trucks, and I’ve got this whole 3-car rotation thing worked out that’s super complicated, and probably won’t interest you, but just in case, here’s a link.

Anywho, one of these projects is in the middle of bodywork, so there’s some bare metal, no windows, and some bare filler on it. It’s one of those things that really shouldn’t be left in the rain, so it stays in my little 2-car garage next to my other project.

Well on Wed, my lovely girlfriend Kirsten is going off for a family reunion, and will be gone for a week and a half. That means her car will be here, which means I can get a big project done on my 2nd project. It’s part of a tech article which I’m doing for one of the magazines I write for, and the 10 days that she’s gone means lots of time for me to get it done, and a vehicle to drive.

But to DO this project, the 1st truck needs to be parked outside. Which wouldn’t normally be a problem but…

Apparently it’s going to rain all week long. Now I’ve got to find a place to store my baby which is nearby the casa in N. Scottsdale, is either free or cheap, which won’t let it get wet. Yeah good luck with that.

Stinkin’ rain.
