It's been a long time since we have seen even the remnant of a hurricane in the Northeast, but apparently one is on the way. People are preparing for high winds, heavy rains, and power outages. There's a certain something in the air - people are bracing for something. The weather people are saying to expect several inches of rain. We have canceled our fellowship event at the church. My dh has stored anything that was out in the yard that may go flying due to high winds.
This might sound sick, but I love a good storm. Mind you, I don't enjoy being in the throes of a full-fledged hurricane. I've been through those before and it's not something I care to repeat. But, there's nothing like a good rainstorm when you and your family are comfy and cozy at home. Part of me hopes the weather people are wrong (they often are when it comes to crazy New England weather) because I have lots to do that involves going outside of my home. I won't be doing any of it if the storm hits.
With any luck, we won't lose power and I can cook, clean, and bake. I love the smell of baked goods on a cold, dreary, rainy day. Nothing cures the blues better than something warm and sweet from the oven!
