D.A. Day 18: Mow First

Well, I was going to mow the yard as soon as I got home from work today to get it out of the way, but the lightning clouds scared me away. It looked like it was going to clear up, though, and that the storm--it there was one--would pass without affecting our place. I gathered my emotional resources, pressed play on my Vladimir Horowitz station on Pandora, and set off to get my writing of the day done. Two thousand words later, I look up and see the rain falling innocently on my yard.
