At the moment, all is calm here. Mostly. We've had a few rain bands hit, it's much cooler today and a pretty stiff breeze is blowing. But our windows are still open. And the so-called sun-rise this morning was beautiful. The sun didn't really rise - it was too cloudy to see the sun, but the light sure was interesting. Between the angry dark skies and the yellow & orange fall foliage, the little bit of sun light that did make it through turned everything a beautiful golden color for 20 - 30 minutes. Of course, my camera refused to see the pretty light.
I'm feeling fairly confident about power outages. Our electric co-op is pretty good about responding quickly. They've also spent the summer cutting back trees from the power lines. They've done all they can to prepare. Except, have they? Take a look at part of their Facebook status this morning:
"We are prepared for prolonged outages and urge our members to do the same."
Sort of sounds like they are planning to take a few days off. I'm sure it's just a wording thing on their part & possibly a lack of enough coffee thing on my part, but.....
Meanwhile, I'm wishing the storm would hurry up and get here. I promised myself I would save the special Hurricane Junk Food for the storm, but the Doritos are calling. Personally, I think they'd make a pretty decent breakfast.
