There was very little rain and only moderate wind today, but my telephone line decided to act up anyway, and of course the Internets went along with it. It was off and on all morning, and I finally got tired of bothering with it and went off to do other things. The other things were not very interesting, and I ended up sleeping through the late afternoon and early evening. It's going to be chilly tonight, but the storm is gone so there will be no snow in the mountains. There isn't expected to be any more rain until after this week's heat wave. I suppose it would be an exaggeration to call highs of 71 degrees a heat wave, except for the fact that this is freaking February. I suppose I'll be needing to use the air conditioner by March. I hate global warming.

But it's cool tonight, and Orion is high in the clear sky. The moon is waning and won't rise for a while yet, so it's a good night for watching the stars. I'm going to do that for awhile and then have a late dinner. It's going to be something light tonight. Fear of a power outage ruining my stock of frozen foods forced me to eat way too much the last few nights, and as it turned out I didn't really need to because there was only one brief outage, and that before the storm had even started. I've made my pants too tight for nothing.

The telephone line isn't acting up anymore, but the computer is being contrary and the typing is going so slowly that I forget what I was going to say by the time the machine lets me say it. Plus Portia is nagging me for attention, and the keyboard is hard to use with a demanding cat on my lap. It's Orion time.
