Rain and Wind! While it remains relatively warm (49° currently), the rain fell without respite throughout the night and continues yet. The wind howled throughout the night and appears that it shall plague us for several days. It is a wind from the south at 30 MPH, but gusts are easily twice that! I perched at my HP laptop this morning at 5 AM and researched articles for this morning's blog. Suddenly, a gust of wind blew the front door fully open! Certainly, angels kept watch over us as we slept—else this would likely have happened during the night! I quickly sprinted to the door and secured it.
