Another day of persistent rain and frequent strong wind has kept me indoors. I didn't even go out to check the mailbox. There have been evacuation orders for some places along the river. Some of the places being evacuated are RV parks full of refugees from the fire zone who haven't been able to find anywhere else to live. The RV parks were built for the summer trade, when the river is low, and are usually empty this time of year, but they've been opened because housing is in such short supply all over the region.

Quite a few cats have been brought in or sighted today, but the greatest part of them are tabbies, and none of them my only tabby, Porky. It must be pretty nasty on the ridge tonight, with the wind and rain. It's pretty nasty here, for anyone venturing outdoors, and it's more likely than not going to continue tomorrow. I'll probably stay in again. A respite is expected Thursday, and I'm ready for it. I'm starting to go stir crazy here.
