woke me up at 4:30 this morning. I was almost blown over while riding my bike to work. Stoplights are out, people are walking hunched over trying to get through the gusts. My house is literally shaking. Trees and phone poles are falling over in the streets. There's no way in hell Irene and I could drive to Seattle in this.
But you know what? That's all okay. Today is fantastic. Every gust makes me giggle and smile. Every step I want to spread my arms and let it push me where ever it will.
