Rain and Wind

So far the electricity is still on. So far...

It rained all night and it has been raining all day. Capt. Adorable and I went for a rain walk after breakfast and checked on the boat. Capt. Obvious checked it again a few hours later, and the two captains are off to go check it again right now. I suddenly decided to make potato leek soup and skillet corn bread and rice...all so that if (when) the power goes out, we will have something good and tasty to eat...

Some good wind out there right now, but at the same time, there are still birds coming to the feeder (so far today we've seen titmice, chickadees, a downy woodpecker, and a purple finch). Capt. Obvious watched a woodpecker clinging to a swaying tree from his upstairs office window--actually, it wasn't clinging, more adjusting itself back and forth with little steps as the trunk moved with the wind.

School was cancelled for tomorrow as well. Now beginning to wonder if we will have Halloween this year, boohoo.
