We spent the weekend preparing for the monster storm that will eat Halloween. The winds should arrive this morning. Luckily, Marina's Monday classes have been canceled so I can spend the quiet of the morning finishing up my strip and posting it, assuming I don't lose power from the winds.
Funny thing is, I wouldn't mind losing power. Sure, there are inconveniences that come with it. But it also means I have an excuse to unplug and enjoy my simpler pleasures, like reading, drawing, and baking. I'm thankful I'm not dependent on my electronics to keep me busy. Because I will need something to keep my mind off of the blowing winds. High winds are a major fear for me, and keeping my mind busy is how I cope. I expect to be very busy for the next couple of days.
But first I'll try to get that comic strip up.
Just think, last week, our weather looked like this:
