  •  Please be careful with doing the (7+ / 0-)

    dishes when thunderstorms are around. I once saw lightning gap from the faucet to the drain. My friend had been doing dishes after a party, and had just emptied the sink in preparation for the last to be done when it happened.
    If she'd been cleaning the sink, or rinsing that last dish, I shudder to think....
    I won't go near a sink if thunder is audible anywhere around.

    •  I won't do dishes during a thunderstorm (6+ / 0-)

      But usually they come in waves and I can get them done between. Most of it's just rinsing and loading the dishwasher. The rest is pots and pans and will take me about 20 minutes.

      And now it looks like I'm going to be able to go get them done this morning because no going all the way out to sav-a-lot. We will go somewhere closer to spend the $5 we have left.

      In a bind

      •  Ok, the bind is more than handled. (6+ / 0-)

        We're going to be able to stock up a  bit so that this doesn't happen again. We're also going to put up some hurricane stuff for this summer, because I hadn't been able to stock anything for that yet either, and I usually have by now.
