It’s Quiet … Too Quiet

We’re just waiting for the storm to hit, watching old Universal horror movies until the power goes out. The wind has been gusting most of the day, and we’re ready for the worst. I may be offline for a while, so mind the gap and I’ll see you soon.



Update: Monday 12:15pm: Still have power, but the wind is starting to kick up. I brought the chickens into the library, where they’ll be safe and dry and have plenty of reading material. I’m assuming once the power goes down, however, it will be quite some time until you hear from me again, so stay safe.

    Be safe! We’ll get whalloped on Tuesday, here in Michigan, but no where near as bad as you guys will get it. May the Lord bless and keep you (above water!).

    Prayers that you’ll not be too inconvenienced by the storm.
    A helpful hint: Stock up on paper and pencils, and you can write the old-fashioned way!

    I’m going to use the time as an enforced break, and while away the hours with some Anthony Trollope.

  • Rebecca Hamilton

    That’s the spirit. Enjoy it. (And be safe.)

    Praying for you and everyone in the path of this storm tonight!

    And, woohoo for Anthony Trollope! :) Barchester Towers is great, and so are the Palliser novels!

    Thanks! I’m reading the first Barsetshire book, the Warden, because nothing takes your mind off a major storm like a novel about Church finances.

    As long as you do have power, check out “Punch Quest” on iOS. It’s free-to-play, but it never bugs you about spending any money. Great little game.
