Utility trucks were lined up in the mall parking lot. Groups of people were out taking down screenhouses. And Cloud and I went out shopping for a little something to bring to the cookout at my sister's house in NH tomorrow.
I've got appliances unplugged and flashlights lined up, and I'm thinking about a cookout in NH.
The wind is intermittent, and we've had a taste of rain, but nothing serious so far. In fact, it's actually pretty nice outside. Breezy and cool. My husband is off running an errand and he thought he'd swing by the beach, just to see how it looked. I can't imagine it looks very unusual right now. He said he'd be right back.
I put tubs of water around the hydrangeas to prevent them from being blown off their stalks, and baked corn bread to add to the stash of food we won't need to cook first, in case the power goes out.
All this prep and nothing to show for it yet. Sheesh. The 4-day rain shower two weeks ago was worse than this.
I hope I don't eat my words.
I did taste the cornbread. It was good.
