Do I want to go or do I want to stay??

We lost power again this morning. It's back now, but, should I disappear, that's why. Cross your fingers and toes!

Now, a few storm shots. Click on photos to enlarge....

This shot was taken through the one back uncovered window. When rain was driven through the edges of the pane, we started to reconsider the wisdom of leaving that one open. We were lucky. My husband had thought about not shuttering a side one and that's the one the tree top from next door hit! This photo can't even begin to pick up the power of those winds.

The cat and kittens had moved into the garage before the storm, but became terrified, so here she is, moved inside the house right after the winds started howling. The kittens are growing daily, btw, and are back living in the garage again. No way to potty train an unweaned kitten and they're moving around like wildfire now.

We were fortunate this year to actually have cool weather. Last year, it was first ten days, then four of lying or sitting in sweat day after day, panting for breath. Sleep? Almost impossible. This was my improvised outfit for the coolest day. Hey, those socks with the sandals. Pretty cool, eh?? :-)
This was the sky the morning after the storm passed, taken from our back patio.

Good to see you back alive and kicking - well, perhaps kicking feebly :-).. Hey, where can I buy a pair of those cute odd socks - one up and one down? Who knows, you might start a trend. G.

I'll send you mine. You'd look real cute in them:-)

Loved the pics, especially the last one--the morning after the storm!

hi michael
wasn't it dramatic?? wish I could've gotten a shot of the sky the two nights when lights were out all over southeast florida..black with stars everywhere that you can't usually see for light pollution...even the milky way. i hadn't figured out how to use the slow time on my digital yet. by the time i found the manual, enough generators were going and just enough lights that the sky was back to looking like a milkshake.

I love your clock Pris...I really love your clock!! It would look good in Lympley Lodge when I win the lotto and buy it. B xx

Isn't that a neat clock? My parents bought it eons ago. The weights aren't attached, though, since the tic-tocking got too loud for them at night. We've never attached them either for the same reason. Now, if you won the lottery, it could go into that huge place far enough away from bedrooms to sleep;-)
