Solid construction

I am impressed with how the house has taken this storm. Although trees are falling outside, and the oak are bending quite far, and although a few big branches have struck the house, there hasn't been so much as a quiver up here in the crow's nest.

If you listen real close, underneath the roar of thunder and wind, the frogs croak on resolutely.

And downstairs, Renato, tired from a big Brazilian party he attended last night in Detroit Lakes (mid-June is a festival in Brazil where you dress up like farmers and have big parties), is sleeping through the tumult.

Blogging up a storm

It is late. I can't sleep because a big storm is raging outside. I have no basement to hide in, but this house is built like a brick something or other, so I am not worried.
