It's wiiiindy today!!



Today I had plans to run errands during my lunch break. As soon as I stepped outside, I changed my mind and came right back in. Wow! It was raining, windy and all around not good weather for someone wearing a skirt and a jacket without a hood. Instead I found a comfortable chair in the lobby of my building and sat down to read - a good way to spend an hour :)

The National Weather Service has actually issued a "wind advisory" for our area that will remain in effect until this evening. This just means the trees will loose their leaves today (and cover our driveway in pine needles), a few branches may come down, and there is a slight chance that the power might go out.

I LOVE power outages! I missed more days of school growing up to power outages than to snow - it was great! Today however, I would like the power to remain ON, or our crock pot dinner could be very interesting...
