Stormy Night

The rain continues to fall...

Yesterday it was pretty ugly...then in the late afternoon the winds picked up. At times it was blowing so hard, the windows would rattle. It was a little spooky. The paper this morning says the wind gusts were up to 49 mph late last night. We have a motion light on the back porch and it was on most of the time.

Sometime in the wee morning hours, the power went out. The light in the dining room has a remote control that turns the light on and changes the speed of the overhead fan. For some reason, when we lose power the light comes on when power is restored. It was on this morning. My clock radio said 3:58 am when I woke up about 8:30am.

The winds are suppose to be heavy again today although it looks pretty still outside right now. Rain is expected through the week too.

The weather service has issued flood watches for small streams and low-lying urban areas. We are not close to any streams that would flood over.

Well, it will be nice when all this stops and we can enjoy some consecutive sunshiney days...not just teasers every once in awhile.


  1. It's been windy and off-and-on rainy here too. Hard to schedule photo shoots. Anyway, I'm fixing to bake me up some Sour Cream Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins right now. Sounds good, yah! Wish me luck!

  2. Oooohh!! did they come out? You'll probably post on your blog... :)
