Today I needed some math skills to get through my morning chores. They failed me. Miserably. I came away with this lesson:
The formula for the distance of a lightning strike by observing said strike and hearing the thunder AND the formula for the distance of a storm from your location using the same set of variables is not equal to the time needed to fill a rabbit's water bottle and make it back to shelter. Nor is it equal to the time needed to drag a trash can from the roadside back to your house. It also does not equal the amount of time required to milk a goat. It CAN add up to 1 washer full of rain-soaked clothes if you factor in the
stubbornness determination of 1 Hoosier Girl!
After 3 stop-and-starts the chores are done and the rain has set in to stay for a while. I think I'll spend the rest of the day in a good literary work and maybe later I'll dust off my old college algebra books- for appearances sake!
