Is it raining in south Texas! I had promised John I would drive him to the eye doctor today. The specialist comes out here on Tuesday to perform surgery and on Wednesday to see patients. Since John had some serious work done two weeks ago he really needed to be checked and see what further work would be done. We left early in a downpour pondering at the end of the street which way should we chance to go. We took the highway with big trucks splashing over the windshield, the truck swaying in the deep water, but we made it with a sigh of relief. A few more patients were showing up dripping their umbrellas all over the floor and making jokes about swimming in. After a while one of the clerks came out to say the doctor had turned around and went back to San Antonio due to the weather. Everyone's appointment would be cancelled and they would call tomorrow to reschedule. Now which way to go home? The highway with people driving crazy and trucks splashing or the around about narrow country road with some low places? I chose the country road. Lots of water on the side of the roads but surprisingly the low places were not bad. Now when he gets his new appointment it will probably be a long wait since he will be seeing the appointments for that day and the ones for this day. Maybe should take a snack that day. I'm still not complaining about the rain but I drew a sigh of relief when we pulled into the drive-way.
