But we're good. I have to admit I slept a lot today, probably recovering from the anxiety we've all been experiencing for weeks. Lisa has too but Mr. Moon has been busy, operating the generator, making us coffee, picking up limbs and branches and taking the plywood off the windows.
Lisa and her kids are going to leave to go back home to Tampa tomorrow. She was able to call her husband and they, miraculously, have power. Slightly ironic in that the place evacuated to does not. It's been a lesson and an eye opener for all us to have no communication to speak of with the outside world but the kids have been happy, playing games and messing about with the chickens and collecting eggs.
I am just incredibly grateful that we got such gentle winds and rain and that it's so delightfully and unbelievably cool and that our generator can make lights and phone charging possible. Also, that I have a gas stove. I'm cooking field peas and brown rice and am going to make some skillet cornbread here in a minute.
We are good. We are so very, very good.
