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.

The wind has been blowing so much around here, too! We seem to be going from torrential rain, wild wind, and then sun with mild temperatures! I hope you got to eat your pork chops!ReplyDelete
Thanks Becky, we did get to eat those delicious pork chops. :) We are having the same kind of weather you are...it's just nuts!Delete
Be careful with all that wind! We recently sold a house and heard that the new owners are dealing with fallen trees this week, after a windy day. We had talked about taking some of those trees out, but never did.ReplyDelete
Oh Penny, I am so sorry to hear about the new owners having to deal with downed trees. What a mess!Delete
Hope your power stayed on and that you made your yummy pork chops. Our ground is totally saturated as well. The lawn next to my front door is mostly one big puddle.ReplyDelete
From the last posts
-- I'll be praying for Rachael and her strep throat.
-- about the car share. It's actually BCAAA. it's the BC version of AAA. According to the news, the Vancouver metro area has the most participation of any metro area in North America for car sharing. The car share I'm thinking about is EVO dot ca. There's others - CAR2GO is one. MODO is another. One of the best parts is that you can park the car in 'residents only' parking spots. That's huge here since finding a parking space is very challenging in some areas.
It did SJ and thank you for the information on the car share program. That is wonderful!Delete
I love a god wind storm but not the after affects.ReplyDelete
Same here my friend!Delete
That always scares me, too, when the winds get wild like that - I am always worried a tree will come down on my house! Be safe my friend!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Debbie, no trees came down thank goodness and all the branches stayed on my trees too. That was amazing considering how strong the winds were. Maybe all the bad ones came down this past Summer. ;)Delete
Glad to hear that the wind didn't do any damage, Debbie, and you didn't lose power.ReplyDelete
Thanks Bless, me too!Delete
