I am hoping that the storm misses us. Still, we are as prepared as we can be for the loss of power. We have ample canned and non-perishable food. We also have 23 gallons of water plus a tubful.
All of our potted plants are stowed away, and the lawn furniture has been brought close to the house.
The rain started as a drizzle last night, and now it’s a cold steady downpour. The wind has picked up a bit.
The news agencies do not want anyone going outside. I am thankful my husband can work from home.
The animals, especially the cat, are very curious. The dog keeps looking out the bay window at the dancing trees behind our home. I opened the front door, and the cat ran to sniff the strange air.
We have cider warming up in the crockpot with cinnamon to help us stave off the sudden chill. Thank goodness the house isn’t drafty. I hope it stays that way!
