Has rained for two hours solidly with much thunder and lightning.   Had planned to take Jean and Ethelyn  to “Anthony Adverse”  but if this continues we may have to wait until Tomorrow! Repacked my bags into Dit’s steamer trunk.  Had to go to town on Image result for anthony adversea sightseeing bus because the streetcars couldn’t run – the tracks were completely covered with mud, rocks, etc.  Met Jean and Ethelyn at the Park.   The show was grand!  Claude Rains as Don Louis, Fredric March as Anthony and Olivia de Havilland as Angela were outstanding.  I think I never saw a more hateful character than Faith. Got home about 7 and the rest of the family was just getting ready to see it so I went down (rather than stay alone) and saw it again!  Twice in one day is enough for that.  Got home at eleven – Paper says it rained 1.99 inches at Ft. Bliss. About that in Fort Hill I imagine.

Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
