Today is exciting for several reasons. First, it is a huelga day! Which is like your northern snow days. Unexpected fun! The purpose of the huelga, of course, is more serious. People in the poorer neighborhood near our school are striking to get paved roads and sewage repairs done. Last time we held school on a strike day there was a minor incident with a small explosive being set off close to the gate of the school. So the school is taking the strikes very seriously.
The rain effectively stopped the strike, so now we have no school on a day when we probably could have--but better safe than sorry.
With the rain comes wet-vacuuming. The slope of our back porch angles toward the house, so water comes right into our office. But it's totally worth it. Because it's been cool and drizzly all day so far. And that hasn't happened here in about half a year!
We've had a wet dog visiting already. We really need to get up that chicken wire. She's way too cute! If we don't do it soon we'll lose our nerve.
