(this is our parking lot)

I must admit that I am kind of enjoying the storm watching. Mother Nature is such an incredible force to be reckoned with. I mean we think our lives are ruled by technology, but once in a while, when you get to see the strength of nature first hand, you know who really rules the world. She brings life, bears fruit and her harvest keeps us alive, but she is also capable of enormous destruction. Not to say that we are really experiencing anything too too terrible. We still have power and we have lots of food – mac n’ cheese, ice cream, chips, wine, etc. But our streets are flooded, so we aren’t going anywhere. The wind is still whipping and it is still raining. But we are content and probably by tomorrow in a severe bout of cabin fever! :)
