Yesterday the sun went behind the clouds and we had hard rain. Lotsa rain. Rain so heavy we could hear it pounding down on the roof of the store. Looking out the front windows, you might think we were sitting at the foot of a waterfall. When I got home, I found the veranda strewn with maple leaves from the tree behind the house.
We have a 41% of getting more rain today. Probably the rain Kentucky didn't want.
One of my fellow flooring associates handed in his 2-week notice. No loss.
The store is getting a renovation in September, so we have a number of people pushing carts around the store packed with laptops and equipment, taking pictures, and using lasers to measure distances. At present we have 4 twelve-foot carpet carousels, one that's 6 feet wide, and a vinyl sheet carousel. Cutting carpet and vinyl for customers is unwieldy and tedious (I'm being nice). After September we will have 2 carousels, one for carpet and one for vinyl sheeting. On some days we will set 4 or 5 cuts of carpet or vinyl, but there are many days when we don't cut any making the space a merchandising black hole. No one at the flooring desk is upset about the coming changes.

And for a Wow! moment, it seems that a lot more messages and texts have disappeared. Phones were evidently reset in Homeland Security as well as the Secret Service. Were they active participants of the insurrection, or did they just ignore it? We do know that Trump popped in as many loyalists as possible because that's what wannabe dictators do, try and stack the deck in their favor. I do think we came closer to having a coup than most Americans realize.
