My internet has been out . I don't know if it was associated with the storm or just with the miserable record for reliability so richly deserved by my service provider. Either way, I'm back on line now.
The storm lived up to the hype in terms of rain and wind. I spent a lot of today dragging off branches and clearing the trail down the mountain. There wasn't really that much to do but it takes a long time to do it by yourself, and I spend as much time resting as I do working these days.
