The sound of soft rain continues to drizzle. Sometimes it is so soft I think it has stopped until I look outside. 40,000 homes in Maryland are without electricity because of fallen trees. We are fortunate as ours is on and hope it stays on all night. If it does go off I might have to make campfire coffee in the morning. The huge fir and pine trees that give so much shade in the summer I now eye warily hoping they continue to stand tall and strong. The ash and sycamore trees have strewn some branches here and there. The maples are hanging in there. The lawn is such a dark green now more like the beginning of June.
I hope everyone closer to the eye of the storm is safe.
