Diluvian day

Rained so hard in the wee hours, it sounded as if a waterfall had started in our driveway. Definitely cataract-level noise; Angel Falls, Iguazu.
We managed to grab two short periods of sun - "sun breaks," as they are ominously called by the delirious weather folk on TV - for our nonegenarian's walks. Mine came when the deluge resumed.
Tired of the pious Agnon, decided to try Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's pretty danged funny; turns all that societal nattering in the original on its ear, and then throws in the "manky undead" to boot. Very silly, and terribly amusing. Probably not to deadly earnest Austen afficionados, however...
