For the last 2 days, the local news has been announcing the BIGGEST STORM WE HAVE SEEN SINCE 2008.
Today, I went to 3 stores to find batteries for our flashlights, and every one of them was sold out of D batteries and flashlights. Target sold out of water. My son and I filled sandbags for our back door. I secured out chicken coop.
We have lots of candles, firewood, food, & beer :). Games are ready to be played in the candlelight.
One of my lawn decorations just hit the house.
It is 2 am, and the storm has arrived. I could feel the wind rising during the day, but now it is definitely here. My house is creaking & squeaking as the wind presses its way through the cracks and crevices of my old house.
It is swooshing.
My Spirit is dancing.
I know I should really be anxious, as the last BIG ONE ripped the shingles right of my roof.
Instead, I just made myself a nice warm cup of turmeric milk with honey, and I am enjoying the sounds of Mother Nature, strong & wild!
Unfortunately, my husband has to drive in this, sent him & the Volvo off with a blessing today. Stay safe out there, Californians!
