Thrills & Chills
The wind's still blowing here, and it's cold. The wind kept getting stronger and stronger yesterday, and last night it literally howled -- and still is. It's been a little nerve wracking, and it's getting old. I love the sound of the wind at night as I'm going to sleep, but this is something altogether different. When it blows and howls and gusts like this, lots of dangerous things can happen. At least it hasn't rained too hard. Or snowed. And I haven't lost my power -- knock on wood. Thank God I haven't seen any bats or crows or scarecrows trying to get in, so I'm counting myself lucky.
Of course, this is nothing compared to what states like New Jersey and New York are experiencing. Mother Nature is clearly showing her testy side. Let's just hope she's not about to start cleaning house.
