The wind was blowing a good piece a couple hours ago,
certainly some gale force gusts.
And yet - blessedly -
The power stayed on - only flickering a bit just to make things fun.
The big pines are still upright.
They're doing that sobering dance they do in strong breezes.
I've been up late listening to the wind.
Since this is the first big storm in a while,
I thought it might be good to be on the alert
in case one of the old boys gets tired
and decides that it's time for a nap on the house.
At least it's not snow,
otherwise - things would be looking like this..
