Hail

Earlier today, I dragged Brooke to the Food Stamps place to drop off her form for getting food stamps, which she has had in her possession for many months. We got that much done, but have to go back tomorrow for her to see someone. We're gonna stop at Grocery Outlet (right next door) afterwards, since it's a new month and I have food stamps.

On the way back to her place, it rained for a while. Then it began to hail. And hail it did. The hailstones were half the size of dimes or smaller, but there was a fuckton of them. We had to hide on someone's porch to get out of it, because the trees weren't good enough protection. Took about 5 or 10 minutes to pass.

Later, there were several instances of water bubbling out of manhole covers because there was so much water from the rain and melting hail that it was trying to go down the drains faster than it could. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be either drowning or manhole-cover surfing if they lived in our sewer system.

Gorn

Watching "Arena." I like the Gorn. But I like Enterprise's reimagining of the Gorn better. If Kirk had had to fight one of *those* Gorn without phasers, the fight might have been over a lot more quickly. I doubt Kirk would've won, because the "Enterprise" Gorn were fast and agile as well as strong. What do you think?
