I can sit and dream about paddling, but that's all I can do. The wind has been screaming for nearly a week---25mph in the lulls, 50 mph in gusts. The mean is probably high thirties. On the seven-day forecast, we're facing three days of rain starting tonight, and then two more days of wind. Ho-hum! At least I'm not spending all my time loading trucks with bits and pieces of my home, like the folks in Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and elsewhere, so all is good----so far.
