The big excitement of the day was the storm last night. Lots of wind. 0.75 inch of rain. Power went out.
It didn't get restored until mid-afternoon.
The problem was a wire down way out by the railroad tracks. Somehow, we were the only house affected (in this immediate area).
The day cleared up, but now there is a second line of severe storms rolling through that may spin up some little tornadoes also. Whoa! But I went to writer's group, where we lost power within 10 minutes of starting, so we all went home. The streets in Ludington were flooding fairly deep and there seem to be a number of blocks without power. High winds (although I haven't seen anything yet as strong as they were here last night). Another 3/4 inch of rain in the last hour. Now it's just raining gently.
Hope we don't lose power again.
So much for the excitement. Now for the apathy.
I have done almost nothing except read books for three days now. I may be able to blame it on the extremely heavy air. Or today I can say I didn't want to run down the computer battery. Or maybe it's just because I can't manage to accomplish things unless there is a screaming deadline right in my face. Or maybe I am just lazy. I suppose we'll see what I manage to do tomorrow.
