Rainiest. Weekend. Ever.

Well crap. It rained constantly and heavily both Saturday and Sunday, so we never did go to the air show. Apparently it was open both days, but only a few of the flyers went up, mostly the fly-bys as opposed to the aerobats. The Thunderbirds stayed on the ground. Woe.

So there we were, the three of us stuck in the house with nothing to do but watch TV. We tried coming up with other stuff to do, but everything we thought of involved us wandering around outside in the rain at least part of the time, and that just didn't appeal. Alex and I fooled around with FS2004 for awhile, and probably could've gone longer, but D started going stir crazy with the boredom. Just to get out of the house, we drove over to Lowes to browse home improvement stuff. We followed that up by wandering through BJs for awhile. Yep.

Today we watched DVDs, then went down to Point Judith for dinner, figuring that practically anyone who'd come down to the shore for the weekend would be long gone. We were right. It turned out the state even closed the beaches today. Came back, watched another DVD, and now Alex and D are on their way back to Jersey.

If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have none at all.
