Hunkered Down

(A government agency that saves thousand of lives daily - just sayin')

It's pouring rain and windy; it's only a matter of time until the power goes out, probably sometime tonight. The utilities say that due to safety issues that they will not be able to even start getting it back on until Wednesday. If we're lucky.

I have my embroidery and needle felting supplies at hand to work on. We have food, water, batteries and cat food. Plenty of books and flashlights.
Batten down the hatches, we're in for a rough night, say the eerily cheerful weather TV people.

Good Luck with the storm. We're thinking good thoughts for you all here in California.
