It's very stormy here this afternoon. High wind warnings are posted and with trees everywhere, power outages are spreading. Our lights have blinked, but so far, so good. I think we have to make it until about 9:00 this evening before we know if we escape.
We have been able to walk during breaks in the rain. Leaves are still falling here making a carpet on the pathways in the local park.
Inside, we have been working on projects. I am making another quilt, but I can't show you photos because it is a surprise Christmas gift for someone close to me.
Tom decided that the big raft style bonsai he had on a rock slab was just too heavy, so he built a cedar planter for it, and just finished planting it up. Then he braved the wind and the rain to get it out into the hoop house he has for winter protection for his little trees.
We have begun to pack up and make lists of what we need to take with us tomorrow. We are going to the Rockaway Beach cabin to work on some projects. Tom has to think about tools he needs and I have to think about everything else. Fortunately the projects are inside, as we expect some more stormy weather.
On Saturday we'll drive from the coast over to the Willamette Valley for a memorial service for my aunt before coming home Saturday night.
With no Internet access except through our phones, I will not be blogging the rest of this week. I'll see some of you on Facebook.
