The Wind is a Whipping!
The winds are whipping outside on this freakishly warm Winter night. It even scared Caesar, who usually likes the wind. He quickly came inside and is now hiding out in the back bedroom sleeping and "guarding" Jeff while he sleeps too. The cats don't seem bothered by it but I am wondering if we are going to lose power at some point. The ground is very saturated and soft and I am afraid that trees may come down on power lines at this rate. We have water continuously running down the small ditch in front of our home. The seed pods from the big tree in front are rattling away as they are being tossed to and fro. The huge pine trees are swaying in the wind and it sounds like they are making hissing sounds as the wind rushes through their thick needles.
My mind goes to dinner, that is yet uncooked. I am thinking that it might be a good idea to get that going soon just in case. I don't want to have to have cereal for dinner tonight. I want something hot, something comforting and something that "sticks to your ribs". I have 3 pork chops waiting to be made into something delicious and relatively healthy. I have a physical next week so I am really trying to eat healthy this week and not depend on cheese as a quick snack.
I am praying the winds die down so that my hubby will not have to fight them on his drive tonight. That makes for a long and stressful shift at work. He does not need that at all.
