A storm over my head.

Redmond, WA, 10:07pm PST. It's raining. It's windy, I mean really windy. The sound of the wind as it swirls and whips around the house is very eery (I don't think the plywood roof was a good idea). The lightning, ooh, I can almost smell it.

The lights in the house are flickering, more regularly now. Momentary darkness, each time a little longer and slightly scarier than the last. I've got my torch next to me and one of those loggy burny-type things I can stick on the fireplace just in case. The battery on the laptop is fully charged so I should be able to at least get light from the screen for an hour or two if needed.

I've got my cocktail shaker, ice bag, key ingredients (including olives) and a clean martini glass by the sink if it comes to that.

Of course, if the lightning, the wind, or the rain does happen to knock out the electricity (it feels real close to something happening...), I'll have no internet conne
