It has been breezy most of the day, with occasional stronger gusts of wind, and the result is that the rain has been blown across my back porch, leaving it soaked. The feral cats are not pleased, the porch normally being their best refuge from rain, as well as the place they get fed. Personally, I've rather enjoyed standing out there feeing the small, cold droplets hit my face. The air has not yet gotten very cold, though it will tomorrow, and I suspect I'll enjoy it a lot less then. For now, I find it invigorating. |
Tomorrow's rain is supposed to be stronger, but the storm is now expected to be gone by Friday. After that we will be getting some dry but very cold nights, and sunny but very chilly days until the rain returns next week. I'll be drinking a lot of hot tea and chocolate this weekend, I'm sure. Sadly, I won't be able to lay in a supply of donuts until Sunday, but in the meantime there are plenty of cookies, and a good supply of English muffins to toast, butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Now that the deciduous trees have shed their leaves there is much more sky to be seen, and once the storm departs there will be winter stars to watch. Of course that will requite bundling up, and even then I doubt I'll be able to stay outside for long, but I am looking forward to a few minutes of watching them glitter each night. They always seem brighter this time of year. Sort of the opposite of ever-duller myself.
