I learned two very important things this evening.
One was old and I should have known better and the other was a new situation, but I am sure to remember how to deal with it in the future.
Thing One: Even if I think the weather man is a complete imbecile and it doesn't really look like it's going to rain, carry the stupid rain gear in even if it does weigh a ton.
Because it rained like crazy for hours. Another one of those tarantula downpours.
I got freaking soaked.
And of course my rain gear was all out in the truck where I had left it.
And Thing Two: Don't wear the hearing aids in the rain with the hat with the plastic cover on it.
The rain beating on that plastic hat cover was so loud that it sounded like my head was in the microwave while someone was cooking popcorn.
I could not hear a freaking thing.
Finally thought to reach up and hit the button to mute the dang things and...
Holy snap! I can hear!
What a weird box of mixed mittens that was. Had to turn my hearing aids off in order to hear anything.
Who'da thunk it?
I do hope somebody is taking notes.
I probably won't remember the next time.
