Its raining raindrops!

Tonight I went in to the Studio at about 11 pm to get a couple of little tasks finished up and it was raining really hard. This was a really beautiful rain so I’m ok with it but the SDSU art building is not. our back porch was about two inches deep at the center and the drain was totally clogged. so, I plunged it out and it made the coolest whirlpool I’ve ever seen. It was dark out and I was cameraless so you’ll have to take my word for it but it was wicked fast and then it started making this really loud suction noise as it drained the water as quickly as it could.

This requires a good tent, but if you have one, camping in the pouring rain is one of the best sleep aids I know.

This post was mostly written because I’m so excited about getting this soundcloud account and embedded player working.

    I bet that whirlpool was priceless! I was thinking about the back porch the other night it was raining so hard. I sleep really really well when it rains, and I had a dream about the back porch flooding the shop due to the drain being blocked…
