Where I live we have been having one Heck of a storm! The weatherman is saying that within two to three days we'll have enough water for the month of January. Have not seen anything this bad since '97.
The power that nature has unleashed has been a bit frightening.
And we've been having what I call "flickering" power outages.
It's been in it's own way exciting too but this kind of excitement I can do without.
When we had a break (briefly) in the rain and it was only lightly drizzling, my husband and visiting nephew went out to check on things and shored up a fence that was seriously leaning over, boarded up a broken window that looked into the basement (a tree branch managed to hit it)
My flowers have been stripped of leaves, and my neighbors dog sought shelter on our back porch, she had not realized her dog had gotten out, drying him off and calming him down we happily returned him to his grateful and happy owner.
But because of the violence of this storm and the power going out from time to time, if you post a comment I may not be able to respond in a timely manner so I ask all of you to please be patient if things are delayed.
One thing I'm very happy about, my favorite old 1970's T.V. show "Kolchak: the Night Stalker" is going to be run on ME T.V. right after Columbo, as I said it was the inspiration for X-Files, Sleepy Hollow has premiered with it's mixture of History and witchcraft, pure entertainment and Supernatural has been renewed for a 13th Season, so now I'll get to see what else the writers keep mixing up.
But if the power goes out again, I have my "old Boston Lanterns" with it's LED lights and my books to read and can cook with our old gas stove, the only problem would be keeping things cold. But we'll manage.
In the meantime as I said before if you post something as a comment and it doesn't show up right away please do not post a 2nd or 3rd time, I will get to you, its just a power outage.
