The forecast says we have an 'atmospheric bomb' circling off our coast in the Pacific.
This means we could get winds up to 60 mph here in the foothills.
I am sure we will lose our electricity.
We've had snow showers all weekend. The temperature has dropped.
The storm is going to hit early in the morning.
We have filled the wood box for both wood stoves.
We have water stockpiled.
Candles and Oil Lanterns are at the ready.
We've been through this before.
But you are never quite prepared for
the sound of the wind roaring through the pass.
Bending 100 ft trees over.
The sound of debris hitting the roof, hitting the glass.
Wind whistling down the chimneys.
Wondering if loved ones are safe.
But the house is sturdy.
We always have Faith.
All will be well.
We'll weather the storm.
We are cozy and warm.
But if you don't hear from me for a few days, you will know why.
We are always the last to get our electricity back.
We live at the end of the line.
But that's the way we like it.
I have a little project to work on to while away the hours.
And maybe......it won't come to pass and the storm will blow over.
And I will have a new project to show you when I come back!
In the meantime, my News Tribune column comes out today.
I hope you enjoy it.
