The red petunias are still out front, but now we have Lollipop lilies too. And white coneflowers in pots on the porch. (They smell like an Italian restaurant, as I sprinkle garlic powder on the leaves to deter woodchucks.)

Well, I will order more groceries tomorrow (Friday, July 9), but here's the catch: Hurricane Ella will blow through, with the heaviest rainfall --maybe three inches of it -- between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The trailer park is in the flood plain of that river I mentioned.

I'm just a couple hundred feet from the storm drain next to the dumpsters. Well, that area formed a sizable puddle form lesser amounts of rain a few days ago.

I wouldn't blame the delivery people if they didn't want to come here Friday morning. The earliest Id expect them to be willing to come would be about 2:00 of 3:00.... And that's assuming that the puddle isn't lapping at my front walk.

I gave yesterday's delivery person an extra large tip, because of the torrential rain she had to go through.

I always give at least a 10% tip. These are people who put hard wear on their cars, go into strange neighborhoods, tote heavy bags around, and endure everything from bitter cold to blazing heat.

My delivery woman yesterday said that she likes delivering to elderly people because driving is hard for them. All too true! smiley - smooch
