Even more rain than from the one last week. This one is being labeled as an actual, bonifide ‘Winter Storm’! No snow here of course, but LOTS or rain. Looks like Thursday night into Monday.
So yesterday was ‘batten down the hatches’ day: moving plants around, covering things up, turning OFF the sprinklers, etc. But my biggest chore involved actually getting off of my a$$ and… Working! You see, we had a new backdoor installed last weekend. It’s much better than the one it replaced. Vinyl, insulated, double glass with blinds between the panes that tilt and raise, etc… One problem though was that a new wood frame and threshold were installed too and they were unpainted wood!! So I spent the day spackling, sanding, priming and painting.
But it turned out to be a perfect day for it! Sunny, slight breeze and 75F… much nicer than it will be for the next 5 days. So let this storm bring it’s worst!!! And I’m sure it will. Especially for the people in mudslide areas. I know that they are getting prepared as best as they can but there’s only so much that can be done.
Today I will be shopping for supplies, food for the weekend, a few Christmas gifts, scuba gear, Oh, and Christmas lights which will be put up AFTER the rain. Now that I think of it, this would have been a good weekend to be snowed in at the cabin! Maybe after the whole cable TV/computer connection problems are repaired. I’m not going through that again!!
Stay safe and warm, and for all of my Jewish friends, Happy Hanukkah!!!
Hope you all like this song!
