Hurricane Update, etc ...
Just a quick note to let you know that we're still here, and have not yet been blown out to sea.
The time is now about 5:00 PM, and the news tells us that the bulk of the storm will roll through the area between now and tomorrow morning, with the worst coming between 8:00 PM and 2:00 AM.
It's been raining steadily and occasionally heavily all day, and the wind has been increasing in strength through the afternoon ... outside my study window, the trees are waving wildly in the cold, howling wind.
All is well so far. The gin supply is holding, we have plenty of food and other necessities (except for those pesky D-cell batteries that are nowhere to be found), and as of now (and as you can see) we still have power. Wish us luck!
Break, break ... new topic ...
For some reason, for about the last week I have been completely unable to leave comments on some of your blogs ... Blogger seems to not want to accept the fact that I have an account and am logged in, and petulantly refuses to let me leave comments. I can comment on Mike's blog, but not on Angelique's or Heidi's ... and I've had some wonderful comments to make over the last few days. Anybody have an idea what's going on?
And that's all for now. Stay happy, healthy, and dry. More thoughts later.
