From the Front

We have had a rather unusual dry hurricane/tropical storm, and it continues to rage with very powerful winds. The howling is about continuous right now. Ms G is so frightened and is cowering or hiding under the bed. She has tried to go to the doorway in a lull to look out but quickly darts back to safety as there are lots of branches and leaves blowing around outside.
We've had a nice day inside and power has been on and off many times.
The western areas of MA are hit very badly with flooding as are VT, NY and other states.
We still have tonight's huge tidal surge to come in 2 hours so the wind will continue to intensify through that time we think.
The police are fire departments are overwhelmed with calls.
That's it from our little corner.

Glad it wasn't any worse and you didn't have any trees or fences come down. I'm sure LM will be glad to get the donkeys out of the kithen and back outside. Did you have trouble getting to work? Bet not everyone was able to come. Have a good day! the sun is shinning!! ...debbie

Animals are so intuitive to weather changes. When in doubt, watch the cat--if she hides, so should you.

I'm glad you are safe. Cats do seemed to be so tuned to the weather. Dogs are the same way.
