More rain from Fay; nephew's birthday dinner

We've had a lovely 2 days of off-and-on rain, sometimes heavy, thanks to continuing effects from TS Fay. And a tornado warning or two--that's the way it goes. There may be a little more shower activity overnight and tomorrow but then it will be gone. The rain has helped the drought....some. I see Lake Lanier is up 14 inches from the low 3 days ago, and should come up some more over the next day or so as the tributaries bring in more water. However, the lake's about 17 feet below normal summer pool. Fourteen, or even twenty-four inches (if the total were to amount to that much) doesn't get us out of trouble.

The rain pattern was very kind to me this afternoon, stopping shortly before I went out to put the baby back ribs on the grill for nephew's birthday dinner. About 15 minutes after the ribs were done, another heavy shower moved through. The ribs were enjoyed by everyone except the birthday boy, who declared "the ribs taste like barbecued chicken". For him, this is not a good thing. And of course, the ribs were made exactly as I always do ribs, and with the same sauce (which I'll grant is the same sauce both s-i-l and I use for chicken--a recipe my mother collected off a Tabasco box in the dim dark ages). The behavior, unfortunately, is typical of the nephew. The strawberry squares were eaten without incident.
