A Pacific storm and a long day
We all knew it was coming.
A Pacific storm slammed into the West Coast today bringing winds and rain which cancelled ferry sailings, upturned umbrellas and transformed roads into rivers.
And to think that when I cleaned the leaves off my patio table I thought how good it would be for the wood to dry out! Ha!
Chloe was planning a good hike this afternoon and I had to be out all day across town. Still, we can’t always get what we want, so Dunkirk and all that, bundled up and out I went.
The storm really set in by this afternoon. I caught the meteorologist call it “a rain river” and described it as a huge band of moisture stretching across the entire Pacific all the way from Japan.
Well, I believe it!
Whoa! Do you see that outline in the top right hand corner? That’s the Canadian Pacific and my whereabouts.
So I think I might try to wait out this storm, work form home, and maybe begin a slow transformation to Christmas. After all, the amaryllis is beginning to bud…
…and I can keep the sunshine in my heart till it comes back again.
