Let's talk about the weather I'm writing this at 1:30 in the morning because I can't sleep! It's raining. I think I wrote in here before that I like the sound of the rain on the roof of the motorhome. It's gentle, rythmic pitter pat can lull me to sleep. But, this rain isn't falling on the roof. It's slamming into the side. It's storming. The wind is buffeting us and rocking the coach back and forth on its wheels. It's not rocking me to sleep. I'm afraid when we look out in the morning we'll see that we're in Oz! I thought we missed the hurricane by not being in Florida?!?! This one has gone on for 3 nights. It's windy. Weather.com says that the wind is gusting to 44 mph. I think it's more like 80! Y'know that photo of the windswept pine trees on the California Coast at Monterey? Here's what it's like on the Oregon coast! :-) One good thing. The Wi-Fi is working. Stormy weather can certainly affect radio signals like Wi-Fi, I'm a little surprised that it's working right now. Hey. It's quiet. I'm going to try to go back to bed. I hope this isn't just the eye to a hurricane.
