There is furious rain tonight, and treetop winds that howl and roar, but leave the low shrubs almost undisturbed. The power could go out at any time. I don't want to have the computer on for long.
Several acorn woodpeckers were perched on the side of the utility pole this afternoon. They haven't done that very often this year. I enjoyed watching them jockey for position, periodic squabbles breaking out as one or another tried to push past the one just above him. Everybody should have a few acorn woodpeckers around for entertainment.
Wind so strong I can't even hear the rain. Time to shut down.
