Rain's been coming down since last night. Wind's starting to pick up. The forecast sounds fairly alarming, but we are on high ground and far from large bodies of water, so we have our fingers crossed. We have lots of food, ice, and alternate sources of light. There are brownies and blondies, and will be roast chestnuts if the power stays on much longer. I've done what I can for work from here, so am now, guilt-free, sitting in the living room with warm wife, dog, and housemates. We are reading each other weather reports and random funny things off the internet, and there may be role-playing by and by.
