Ranen found the perfect spot for an afternoon nap at grammy's...a window seat with a front row view of the storm. She was quite intrigued with the seagulls...swooping and sailing in the wind.
We spent a lot of time on the window seat...since the lights went out right after I took these pictures...and it was the brightest spot we could find to read books during the storm.
We have a little generator...which needs to be started manually...and will run the pump which keeps the water out of our
basement crawl space. The one who needs to start the generator was over at the farm tending to things in the storm...while here at our house the water continued to rise...very quietly. We now have an exceptionally clean basement.
Playing games by candlelight sounds like fun...dealing with water where it shouldn't be, not so fun!
