'Tis the Season
Quick. It's not raining, or blowing like stink, or snowing. 'Tis the time of year to take advantage of the breaks in the weather. I took a quick walk to the beach today before the next storm hits. We had a doozie last night. And the night before. I was driving home in the dark on Sunday night and the height of the Kennedy River was frightening. I suddenly became paranoid of sliding off the road into it — something I'd never considered in the 16 years I've been driving HIghway 4
And then of course we lose power, which I actually enjoy a great deal. That was how Sunday night was spent.
While we rarely get snow out here on the coast, the same cannot be said for the road we have to drive to "get out." This is how it looked Saturday afternoon.
The snow has since been washed away, but it will be back.
So, 'tis the season to be able to enjoy the breaks in the weather as soon as they come 'cos you know something else is riding its butt. It's also the season for stocking up on candles; and putting on the snow tires.
[Further to this post, here are some wonderful photos showing the stormy weather and the height of the river.]
