We had a bit of rain here during the night, but not like at my mother's house. About 10:45 this morning, I pulled up al.com. The headline was about a lot of rain that was in my mother's town. I read the article and it said that the police and firemen were busy helping rescue people from their homes because of the floods. It name about five streets, one of which was my mother's street. I tried to call her. No answer. I called her cell. No answer. Then I called my cousin. No answer. I then called her friend. She answered. She said that it had not been long since she had talked with my mother. She said that they had 4 1/2 to 5 inches of rain this morning. Wow! That's a lot. I waited 15 minutes and then called my mother again. She finally answered. She did not know about the flood. Where had she been? Walking Bo between a break in the rain. She said that earlier he would not go outside, but she was able to get him to go under the eaves. I called my mother back later. She said that she heard that some parts of town got over 7 inches of rain. I guess there goes that drought.

On my way home from work, I stopped by Edgar's Bakery to get some cranberry walnut bread. They were out. They were out last night. I may try again tomorrow night, then I'm going to give up. I would call and order, but there is only one number for all of their stores, and no one ever answers the phone. I also want to get some sausage mushroom quiche to put in the freezer for a later date. Wish me luck.

After I eat dinner, I'm going to watch Masterpiece Mystery on pbs.com. Our local PBS station has been having their quarterly fundraiser and they have not been showing Masterpiece Mystery or the Britcoms.

I hope everyone has a nice Wednesday.
