Pat Shingleton: "Attic-Basement Weather Clean-Up..."
We'll be dodging showers today and the National Weather Service has designated Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and the Carolinas as the wettest spots this year. Years ago my brothers and I would settle in to enjoy episodes of the "Three Stooges" on rainy summer afternoons. However the respite was short-lived when the soggy weather pattern advanced to the next day. The early morning began with the traditional hearty breakfast and with baseball games cancelled Mom directed us to seasonal chores; cleaning the basement, attic and garage. A large compliment of tools and lawn equipment were moved as the garage floor was swept. The basement was swept down, hosed down and straightened. Those were the chores then and except for the basement, it will be a chore this weekend.
