Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

More specifically, a stormy night here in the neighborhood of Port Swiller Manor.  The miserable 90+ degree blazing weather of the past ten days or so is over, the high tomorrow will be in the mid 80’s and in the 70’s over the weekend, and we’re slated for lots of rain on into next week.

Woo Hoo! Autumn is coming, baybee!

Meanwhile, by this time next week we may be dealing with Hurricane Florence, which apparently some models are now predicting will bull’s-eye the Virginny Tidewater, right where Middle Gel is in school.  The parent board over at FacePlant is already starting to freak out a bit, but as far as I’m concerned there’s really nothing to worry about even if the storm hits there.  The kids will be fine.

Back in the day, Hurricane Gloria came right up the Connecticut River valley and over the People’s Glorious Soviet of Middletown.  They actually advised us to tape up our windows in advance, which we all did with gusto and glee. The thing hit early in the morning, and when it got bad, we all moved out into the hall and had an impromptu hurricane party.  I’ve never been that shnockered that early in the day either before or since (and pray now I never will be).

In the mean time, I’m going to go enjoy the show.
