‘Virga’ mi verga

Wet dream.

The NWS calls it “virga,” which means “rain that evaporates before it reaches the ground due to very dry air above the surface and below cloud base.”

But they should really call it “verga,” which means “dick,” which is what you get. And a dry hump it is, too.

Rain? Sheeyit. We got better odds of seeing a sensible gun-control measure clearing the Senate and Beelzebozo doing the perp walk.

    Heh. On that note, Ye think if I offered my assault rifle and large capacity magazines up to the Gods, it would rain in return?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      It would probably rain .223 rounds, is what.

    • Pat O’Brien Says:

      Go ahead, make that rain!

    • khal spencer Says:

      on second thought, the way this country is going, I may need all that shit. If the Orange Turd is elected in ’24, I think some of us are gonna have to make hard choices. Hijack a starship, anyone?

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        Khal, if I was you I would sell that PPPOS (parkerized plastic piece of shit) and buy one of these. Now this is shooting fun. Reminds me of.22 plinking at long range. Did you get that .22 to shoot a three shot group of 1 inch or less at 100 yards yet?

        • khal spencer Says:

          That is tempting. What I’d swap that PPPOS for immediately would be a nice Garand.

        • khal spencer Says:

          Best I’ve done with that single shot is a few inches at 100 yds lying on a blanket, dodging ants, and with a crosswind out on BLM land. The range has been closed due to fire restrictions, so no benchrests yet. But I am dying to try it.

        Starship theft worked for Lazarus Long in “Methuselah’s Children.” Swiped the New Frontiers after the “Crazy Years” turned into the “Crazier Years,” and pissed off with the Howard Families for parts unknown.

        Of course, Lazarus got a little weird himself after tooling around the Universe for a few millennia and doing a bit of time travel on top of it, but hey, who doesn’t?

    Well as you are sending your heat to the Mitten State (96 degrees today and it ain’t a dry heat) it’s only fair we should send you some rain. Got almost two inches last night and a helluva a light show complete with kettle drums. When the pets bolt for the basement ya better take note. But the basement just might require use of your kayak. I’m guessing you desert dwellers aren’t familiar with sump pumps and what transpires when your power goes out during heavy rain?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Oof. Two inches? We’ve gotten about half that all year. But as you note, there can be too much of a good thing.

      The Wizards are talking about a visit from the North American Monsoon later in the week, but Wizards do a lot of talking. Talk never watered any cacti.

        Gonna hit mid 90’s today with enough humidity to thaw a mother in laws heart. Went for 16 mile ride yesterday after getting shingles vaccine. Yeah….bonehead move. The last mile home up the hill felt like Mt. Everest.

      • Pat O’Brien Says:

        90s? Humidity? I was going to cook in my solar oven today, but I was afraid the veggies would burn up!
