It’s a good day for staying in bed. We finally had some thunderstorms in the middle of the night, big boomings and crashings. The wind clawed and scratched at the door and windows, trying to get in, making its way under the door, driving the water before it. Actually, not that much water seeped into my room, most of it staying out on the balcony. Right now the wind is still blowing quite heavily–I would guess something like 40 or 45 mph–and occasional bands of torrential rain parade through. The fields aren’t quite underwater, but they won’t be used for a couple of days, at least. The system is starting to move out of the area, but I’m sure we still have another day’s worth of rain to look forward to. More later.
