It looks cold and gloomy outside. It’s actually humid and warm but I’ve been keeping the house cooler than usual so it will take longer to get uncomfortable if the power goes out.
Turkey vegetable soup is simmering. Used a quart of home canned chicken broth and some frozen chopped dark turkey meat from the freezer. Onion, celery and a little carrot added. Will add zucchini. mushrooms and perhaps tomato in a while. Aroma filling the house!
Wind and rain force have calmed down. Rain has been coming for over 48 hours at this point. The ground is littered with foliage and branches. The sound of chain saws has been the background noise each time the rain lightens up. My area sure dodged the bullet. Flooding next week is going to be bad as the swollen rivers slowly make their way to the coast.
