Rainy Sunday

The Deck on a Wet Sunday
Elkridge, MD
August 16, 2020
I was supposed to be out on a golf course this morning, but not! It is raining and the rain was predicted in time to cancel the tee time yesterday. If the courses are anything like my lawn, after nearly three solid days of drenching rain, I am sure it would have been a muddy round and not much fun. Slogging around a wet, muddy course getting covered with mud is not my idea of an exciting run of golf. And when the golf ball plugs instead of running out, it makes the course just that much longer.

And as it is, Sunday has arrived. It is wet and quiet outside. I was lucky enough to get the lawn mowed yesterday, so I can enjoy the rain without worrying about trying to cut the grass. I asm waiting for my weekly Sunday New York Times to arrive--hopefully it will be dry. I treat myself to one newspaper a week--in the print variety. It is amazing the articles I find that I don't see on the internet when I read the same paper. 

I can also get back into the coronavirus statistics--although they are not easy to understand. In the weekly trend statistics, as reported by the Washington Post, Maryland is showing 12 new cases per 100,000 residents; meaning that the state is unlikely to come off the New York quarantine list again this week. Florida showed a huge drop, but is still at 23. 

Well, I guess we will have to wait for another week to get off the list.
