Odysseus has opened the bag of Aeolus.
Still dark out but getting lighter. The wind is howling. My flags are standing straight out from the pole when the wind gusts. There won't be any leaves left on the trees after this, which is just as well. This wind will take most of them off the roofs of the buildings, which is a boon to me. Cedar shakes and wet leaves are a bad mix.
I had thought, since it was warmer out than I had anticipated, I might sit out on the porch for awhile but I guess not. I'll wait for it to get to a calmer level.
Nothing planned for today. I'll stay inside out of the blast, read a bit, and maybe watch some DVD's. I need to do some light cleaning of racked weapons but I don't really feel motivated so it can wait a bit.
Maybe I'll take the truck down to the mailbox later today. I am expecting some books, and I'm not walking down there and back for awhile. That might be the highlight of the day.
This is why you need a dog. One of the best episodes of Miami Vice, but the segment before the theme music is the instructive part. Sorry about the advertisement at the start, can't get rid of it. Below is a link to an actual event, written by a friend of mine. I am very glad she had a good dog at the house. It's the post from Monday, Nov 9th, that you will find both useful and a bit unnerving.
