“Air, I should explain, becomes wind when it is agitated.”

The tops of trees bend down left and right. I’ll be surprised if I don’t see branches lying in the yard. The rain pours. Nearer the coast the houses are being battered, and the roads are flooding. Some are closed. The risk of losing electricity is high. I am drawn to the windows to watch the trees and the sheets of rain. The storm is fascinating.

Sometimes I’d go to the beach when the winds were especially high. I’d stand with my arms out and let the wind take me. It was exhilarating. Later today the wind could get around 76 MPH. The tides are historically high. The waves are twenty to thirty feet. There are two more high tides with the dangerous one around midnight. I’d like to be there, at the beach, but I know with my history a tree would fall on me or my car or both.

Last night I got ready for Peapod, but the truck never came. I checked my e-mail, and delivery is scheduled for today. Last night’s supper was dependent on groceries so I had to punt. I had bought Eastham turnip already peeled and cut. I cooked it. It was delicious, almost sweet. The only drawback is turnip smells gross to me when it is cooking. It is like cabbage in that respect.

I slept in this morning which surprised me as I had gone to sleep early for me, around midnight. I had finished my book and was sorry I hadn’t brought up the next book in the series, the last one I have. I could have gone back down the stairs to get the book, but I turned out the light instead.

My arm still hurts. I have to type with my laptop actually on my lap and my arm resting on the arm of the couch. If the laptop is on the table, the angle is wrong, and my arm hurts almost immediately. I still have 5 or 6 weeks to go.

Today is a stay inside and just take it easy day. I do need to change my bed, but I’m not looking forward to doing that almost one handedly, maybe tomorrow, maybe not.

I’m going to start my book. I’m going to put my feet up and get comfortable. I’m going to eat some chocolate. I think it will be a wonderful day.

    The wind has finally calmed down here and changed direction slightly so now things are back to normal again 🙂 I also brought in more fire wood and it felt so nice when the heat slowly spread in my home. It is still winter n´but right now I just don’t care 🙂

    I’m not sure I’ll feel the same tomorrow when we risk getting more snow though 🙂 but there’s also a chance that we possibly perhaps might see the sun, at least through the clouds and I’ll take it if that’s all we’ll get 🙂

    Have a great day!

    Christer.

      Christer,
      The wind is still wild here. The trees almost bend to the ground. It sounds as if a train is coming through.

      I guess the rain will be gone by tomorrow, but I don’t know about the sun returning.

      Have a great evening!

    Stay safe and warm!
    Still cold, snowless and sunny here. We aren’t used to 16°F but I enjoyed the sun and even biking was fun. The temperatures are already rising, maybe spring will come?

      Birgit,
      The wind has been close to 75 MPH. The rain is still coming down. My lights went out but only for a few minutes; however, the cable keeps going on and off.

      The wind really does sound like a train.
