November 17, 2009
We got some rain over the weekend, not much, but just enough to get that great desert smell. I just found out in a newsletter that Kathy gets called Bottom Line that "when the weather is dry, certain plants secrete an oil that is absorbed by rocks and soil. When it rains, the oil is released into the air as a gas, creating an aroma called petrichor."

Not Bad Weather
Another page from my quest to do 10,000 bad drawings:

I hosted a free lunch for the staff today to honor our tenth anniversary and to celebrate the completion of our Third Annual Source Book (which Robert Ray has nicknamed "The Stress Book.") Carole ordered Subway sandos for everyone and we had a fine time.

"There is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather."
—John Ruskin

Don't tell that to a tornado survivor.
