Siamese cats can resemble snakes when viewed at the proper angle.

Thursday night, it rained a lot in some areas of the greater Phoenix metro area. There were reports of 100mph winds at the airport, tons of downed trees, power outages, flooding, and even hail. I noticed it was raining some when I hit the sack, and didn’t know that it had rained a lot until I walked outside and saw that the drainage pond was full. The weather here is extremely sensitive to geography during monsoon season.

The rain actually caused some headaches at work, but we figured out how to fix them. Power got shut off several times, and all the machines in the data center were OK, but some of the workstations got shut off and were unhappy. All in a day’s work.
