After a crazy morning yesterday, doing the weather on the back-up computer and keeping tabs on the train derailing in Columbus, I was pretty exhausted. I went home and took a decent nap with plans on heading down to the Ohio River later. Dawn and I went down with her boss/cousin and his wife. We had a blast. We first ate at Montgomery Inn and their ribs are just as good as I had imagined and been told. We then took the boat up the river to Riverbend because there was a concert at their pavilion. We anchored down and got to listen to part of Lit and Gin Blossoms' set before we headed back down the river to the marina. It was a fun night for the four of us to enjoy the great weather before the rain returns. I even got to drive the boat up and back down... but I left the slick maneuvering through the marina to her cousin... haven't driven a boat very much and didn't want to crash his boat, haha.
What a great day to take a ride on the river...after all the food at dinner, Dawn and I lounged out on the back of the boat.
The rain returns today. Only isolated showers for today, but a better chance for scattered showers and storms for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The models are still showing isolated showers for early next week as well so the next seven days contain a chance for rain each day and mild temperatures with highs staying in the mid 80's. Right now it looks like we could see close to an inch of rain for much of the area through the weekend. I can't remember the last time I mowed the lawn...the only thing noticeable: the tall wheat-like weeds. Ehhh, just leave them... (I really SHOULD mow) Anyway, get your rain collection buckets ready and have a good one.
