winds are back and pretty darn bad again. rain as well so ground not hard anymore either

I woke up around 3:35 or so this morning. Had this weird dream, I thought it was anyway.  I loved trains as a kid, used to travel that way to NY every Christmas. Back in those faraway days, NY at Christmas was awesome. It was special.

Mom and I crossed country Ct. to California by train in 40s. And I was enrolled in military academy. Very young.  Now that’s a memory let me tell ya. Not the school. The train trip. Imagine people, WW2 was still on. Really.

So ... I thought I was dreaming and woke to the rush of a train, or something that sure sounded like one.

It’s back and it is NO fun.

The damn Wind! It’s as bad as last time, except now those remaining two trees have zero between them and the ground.

It was so damn loud, and of course I couldn’t see anything at that hour, so I restarted my book on Victorian England, by A.N. Wilson. Very detailed.But the noise outside was really rather distracting. And it has not let up for more than maybe a minute if that since then.

Was supposed to go out today, have errands and really need to get to the bank in town. Forget going out today. When I opened the back door to see what was happening there once I had light, and once the wind died off a little bit, I’m not making this up. I opened the door and if it was a movie it couldn’t have been timed better. Soon as the door opened the wind kicked up hard and I got drenched.

Every now and again there’s the sound of a thump, it’s either our house or the one to my right. Hard to tell.  But that house lost some tiles and was repaired last week.  Hmm. That house is one of the two new ones. Keeping fingers crossed of course, but this 20’s bungalow hasn’t lost any tiles so far.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
