Good 31º cloudy morning.
Yesterday I met up with Jennifer and we went to the hospital to see Mike. Jennifer's head is still sore where the criminal jerk smacked it with his gun, but getting better. And Mike........ OMGOSH, his is doing so well! He had two surgeries for the bullet wounds and injuries to organs. He is up and walking around now.
So great to see him!!! He should be going home soon. Thank for all your good wishes and prayers!

Interesting about the wettest place in the world.....
As of 2017, the wettest inhabited place in the world was the village of Mawsynram, in the state of Meghalaya, India, which had received 467.36 inches of rain, on average, each year. Just 9.32 miles away, Cherrapunji, another village in Meghalaya, got soaked with an average of 463.66 in of precipitation annually. That gave India the top two wettest inhabited places on the globe.
The Himalayan Mountains to the north block rain clouds as they travel from the south, causing a lot of rain and also giving the Mawsynram area rivers and waterfalls. The people of the village carry their umbrellas everywhere, use basket-hats to keep the rain off when doing agricultural chores, and soundproof their huts against the noise of heavy rain. They do, however, get a brief respite in the “dry” months of December and January, with rainfall amounts of only 2.36 in. Cherrapunji sits atop the Khasi Hills, 4,500 feet above sea level. Monsoon winds off the Bay of Bengal cause its rainy season.
Tutendo, Colombia gets nearly as much rain as Cherrapunji does in a year, 463 in, during two rainy seasons, giving the small town of 1,000 people third place on the list. While New Zealand’s climate is primarily arid, Cropp River took fourth place with 453 in of rain a year. On December 2-13, 1995, 51.3 in of rain fell on the town; that was the rainiest two-day period on record in the country
