We just lost power.
We had a pretty good run as I followed many of my close neighbors over the last three hours, announcing their power loss.
Just when we thought we could be clear, and just while the whole family was enjoying reruns of “Frasier” on Netflix, buoooooom.
I think that’s the noise it made. Nothing. An eerie quiet. So we are breaking out the cards and the backgammon board.
I guess we will be going to sleep soon but the latest information tells us the most destructive (potentially) winds will arrive around 2 a.m. So we will be sleeping with one eye open, ready to gather the family and dive into our safe room (the master bedroom closet).
We laid down foam padding that I had stored and is coming in handy now if we have to spend any time on the floor of our closet.
Rain has been coming down steadily since early afternoon, at times with loud winds and rain going horizontally. Trees have been stubbornly holding on to their branches so far.
That could change soon.
We still have wine. We are good.
