In the movie Primal Fear, Richard Gere plays a criminal defense lawyer. In one scene, he says about himself, “First thing that I ask a new client is ‘Have you been saving up for a rainy day? Guess what! It’s raining.’ ”
Guess what! It’s raining. Again.
A meteorologist on TV last night said that 10″ of rain, which we have gotten in Northern Colorado, is the equivalent of 100″ of snow. That is difficult to imagine. In a normal year, we only get about 14″ on average.
The court house and other government offices in Boulder County and Larimer County are closed due to flooded roads. Schools are closed. And our law office is closed.
With the inventions of the telephone and internet, I am able to work from home.
With the invention of the Ford F250 SuperDuty Supercab diesel 4-wheel drive pick up truck, Miss Sugar might be able to make it to the grocery store for provisions for a rainy day. I sure hope she does not have to go “off road.” Our ranch is 20 miles from town.
We have saddlebags. Maybe she would be better off taking one of our horses because a horse can swim, whereas a Ford F250 pick up truck cannot.
Maybe we should have gotten a Hummer. Or an ark.
