After getting a heads up email from Brian's violin teacher this morning, we turned the news on and watched the weather forecast. It was a wild, wet one out there already, and it's supposed to get worse mid-day. Between the high winds predicted and our sodden ground, downed trees are likely. How sodden IS our ground, you ask? (You didn't, but I'll tell you.) Measured at the Portland airport (as these things are in this area), December 2015 is now the wettest MONTH on record, with 13.46" so far and a wet week and a half to go! We have also had measurable rain for 21 straight days, another new record.
The late morning wasn't too bad; very little rain and glimpses of blue through the scudding clouds. But the wind has picked up and occasional gusts are rattling the house; I'd better post this while I can.
Praying for the trees 'round . . .
