|THESE Tattered Pants Now Reside on my LH Bookshelf for the NEXT Time the Weather Goes BAD While I'm at Work|
Thanks, Jerry C!
Yesterday, I bet on the come that I would not need rain gear. I lost that bet. In the process, however, some simple motorist wisdom came my way. Without any intention of insulting my loyal reader, my own experience is that engineers have an unusual level of insights about things compared to "regular people." As it turned out, this observation came from an engineer. Actually, from one of my engineers. More details would confuse y'all so I'll avoid them.
The wisdom? Leave a set of the "less best" rainwear at work for those days when the weather goes bad when it shouldn't. Duh. Why didn't I think of that? Basic rainwear is almost as cheap as the electricity costs of running the drier to dry out soaked clothes nowadays. Why keep all THREE pairs of my rain pants at home?
Now, all I need is an obvious way to not have to worry about lightning, hail, tornados, or deep snow and I'll be completely set.
Thanks, Jerry C. A set of rain pants now reside in my LH upper bookshelf, and I'm shopping for a second waterproof jacket. The old one was getting a bit tattered anyway, so duplication makes sense. Now, stop patting yourself on the back and finish getting that roofbeam sized!
