I did it!

Yes, single-handedly, I appear to have solved the heat wave issue in the upper midwest and provided at least a little rain. How did I do it, you ask?

Yesterday, I talked to several people about my intentions to try renting a kayak today and going out on a local river or lake.

I woke up and it was sort of overcast. Not satisfied, I then called the rental place about renting a kayak, got all sorts of information, and told them I'd probably be over before long.

Within minutes, I heard thunder in the background.

And now we're getting rain.

Heat wave solved! Dang, I AM good!

(It may not be much, but even a little thunder and lightening is enough to discourage me from a casual attempt at kayaking.)


  1. I also find that spending money to have your car professionally detailed will also bring torrential rain within two hours.

  2. If we water the garden, it will rain shortly thereafter. It never fails.
