It was supposed to rain yesterday but didn't. It wasn't supposed to rain today but did. Grr.

Same down here. I spent yesterday driving around doing estimates because it was supposed to be raining.

I spent today mowing five lawns in the rain. Well, only two of them, but the grass was a mess at the other three as a result.

At least I got to find out if my boots were waterproof as they were advertised to be. They are.
