And So It Begins...

The first squall just hit, a steady rain, some gusts, and it got dark in a hurry.

Too dark for decent outdoor pics, but that never stopped me. :-) I had to jack the gamma into lower earth orbit, but those aren't stars you're seeing, but raindrops.



Then, as swiftly as it hit, it was gone.

Keep up the good work, we are reading your updates.

Reading you here in Charlottesville, Va. Keep your head down. Do you have an independent power supply there in the house? Batteries or generator or both?

Battery backups for the router and laptop - dunno how long they'll last in a crunch.

You're lucky, Marcus. What you are doing is stupid, but fortunately Gus appears to be weaker than anticipated.

I hope that you do not have to go through as much as Michael Barnett, the Interdictor, did during Katrina. I was glued to his blog from before it hit through when he was finally relieved. I have friends on the MS Gulf Coast that lost everything. Take care. From Oxford, MS.
