The storm has begun to hit. It comes in waves of wind and rain, then nothing, then more bands of wind and rain. As I look down the valley over the far distant mountain range I can see the storm layers move towards me. One minute it is clear, the next thick dark cloud layers are moving up the valley towards me. The wind seems to be getting pretty steady now, but the rain is inconsistent for now. As darkness sets in the storm will increase. It will be a long night. The winds will be much stronger up here near the mountain top. It’s amazing how far reaching they have made this storm. North to south and east to west, few are being spared this side of the Mississippi. My dishes are washed, my bathtub filled with water, a long lasting casserole is cooked and now it is time for a stiff drink and a hot shower before the fireworks begin. Stay safe everyone!

5:06 P.M. update….Before and afters of the storm bands that I described….
Now after as the next storm band engulfs the valley…It is now raining heavily and the wind is now starting to howl….
No more mountain range…It won’t be back tonight I’m afraid. It sounds like the storm is done teasing and is settling in now for the night. Be well and keep using your focus to lessen this storm and take away their power! We can do it!!!! More later….VK
