Swimming In The Rain On Columbus Day In Texas
Today is that day that comes around once a year when we celebrate Christopher Columbus arriving in the Americas in 1492 to begin the multi-century takeover of North, Central and South America from those who already called these lands home.
I do not know how I will be celebrating this celebrated holiday today.
I do know there will likely be no outdoor activity of the walking, hiking or biking sort.
Rain is on the menu for today and tomorrow, falling in possible copious amounts, at times, hence flash flood warnings.
On top of the copious amounts of rain falling lightning is also predicted to start striking at some point in time today.
So far today I have not seen a bolt of lightning, nor heard a boom of thunder.
And the rain, so far, has seemed semi-copious....
