Missed us Again

29 Oct

We lucked out when Joaquin decided to go up the coast rather than come inland, and last night parts of the area got pounded with the remnants of Hurricane Patricia. I’d closed the bedroom windows because it became wildly windy, but when I got up at 4:30 this morning the moon was shining, and it had hardly rained here at all. Tuesday was a full moon so it is still pretty bright – not quite bright as day, but our side porch roof is white and I thought it had snowed. Chilly, too, I might add.

The forecasters are predicting a bad winter, and the acorns are so heavy this year you need an umbrella to go out for the mail. I’ve been collecting them in the plastic zip bags you get at the deli, and have ten bags full packed in the freezer. Cheaper than deer corn or peanuts, and our great-granddaughter thinks it’s great fun to help G-G-Mom and G-G-Pop pick things off the ground and put them in metal buckets.
