Swimming In The Rain While Being Advised About A Texas Area Flood
AREAL FLOOD ADVISORY?
Should that be A REAL FLOOD ADVISORY?
Or maybe AREA FLOOD ADVISORY?
I feel I need to find out what the word "AREAL" means. I'll be right back....
According to the Wikitionary—
"areal — of or pertaining to an area. areal interstices — the areas or spaces enclosed by the reticulate vessels of leaves"
Well, it appears that "areal" means "area". So, why not have an AREA FLOOD ADVISORY instead of an AREAL one?
Enough about areal flooding confusion.
This morning I had myself a really fine time swimming in the rain.
Judging from the fact that enough rain fell overnight to almost have the pool spilling over I can see how it is that we are having an AREAL FLOOD ADVISORY.
With all these water woes I will not be going hiking or biking or walking in any of my regular hike, bike or walk locations today.
Unless I feel a sudden desire to walk under a bumbershoot.
