Because we have had so much rain over the last few days that the Pit, as we so lovingly call the grassy area splitting my townhouse development into halves, has more water in it then I can recall in my twenty-some years living here.
It is now Lake Pit. Somewhere under there an alligator is growing hungry.
But notice the faint tint of green in the grass in the foreground! With the sun out full throttle today, tomorrow the brown will miraculously disappear and it will be spectacularly bright green! I mean we turn forward time, so why not?
