PERCENTAGES

A small headline seen Sunday: Rain Expected in Bay Area. I click on a satellite view of the northern Pacific and an arrow points to the squiggle that is going to come scooting down from Alaska. 50% chance Thursday.

Yes, I am now convinced that my campaign of rain seduction is affecting the weather. It’s not yet October and the storms are coming. Hooray. It’ll be good for everyone, trust me.

Now it’s Monday. The 50% has been downgraded to 30%. What happens when I skip a day.

So here’s today’s:

look at the old house in the dawn rain                                                                                 all the flowers are forms of water
