After heavy rain here all night, the TV weather guy said the wind part of our storm has hit the Washington coast. The coast is about 120 miles west of me. There was one weather buoy off the coast that clocked a 60 mph gust. In the town of Westport (there's a web cam at their site) gusts have been clocked at 30-40 mph. They are predicting wind in the Seattle-Tacoma area at about 2pm this afternoon. They say it will take about 6-8 hours, to pass thru, so right thru the rush hour. Hopefully that’s all it will be when it comes our way. My woodstove is going, it’s nice & warm in here and if the power goes out…I can even warm up some soup on the top of the stove.
I woke up this morning with a horrible cold. My head is stuffed up, I have a deep chest cough and I feel generally crappy. But once again…I’m home, not at work. I got out the juice, the Vicks, the inhalers, and the Kleenex tissues so I’ll be ok. The only thing is, I was planning on going to the Homecoming Events Friday morning at my former high school. I think now, I’ll stay away. My resistance is obviously low right now and I don’t want to pick up something else and I certainly don’t want to expose anyone else to my “bugs.”
I got a delivery from Amazon the other day. It was three new books for me from the author Richard Paul Evans. Two are older books of his but one is his latest book, entitled “The Gift.” Richard Paul Evans wrote the “Christmas Box” and if you’ve never read it or any other of his books, I highly recommend them.
That’s all for now…those of you here in western Washington (and you know who you are!) stay safe, warm & dry. Linda
