6. Yep.

I'm very high on a mountain, and there isn't much risk of flooding here. But the wind blows hard up here. The last big storm resulted in a couple dozen trees coming down.

I brought a load of good dry firewood to my older sister last night, and delivered some groceries to an elderly friend earlier today. Now I'll sit back and take it easy.

Should the electric go out here, we are okay. Our house is an old stage coach station, with a large central chimney and three fireplaces on the first floor. Also, a Dutch oven in the dining room's fireplace.

So I'm fine. And family & friends in the area know that, if need be, they can come and stay here. I count myself lucky in this type of situation -- there are a heck of a lot of people facing far greater hardships from this storm than me.

(Note: Although I am a non-drinker, I see that my wife has opened a bottle of wine. Maybe if she drinks a couple of glasses, she'll mistakeme for a younger, attractive version of myself!)
