MARLEY: Well, I was espectin ta have ta argue with Ayla and Iza about who got to report on the Irenesstorm, but they just laffed an said that was "silly boycat stuff". They are just nappin on the bed all day...
Good! I can do this all myself... I am checking out all the windows (an TBT is helpin me look out the garage windows cuz they dont have sills ta jump up on).
2 PM - We have almost a whole inch already. It only started rainin a couple hours ago. The TV shows the serious rain about a short nap away. Ayla says the rain is fallin from an odd direction. Hmmm, I hadnt noticed that. I must get more observant!
4:45 PM - We got to 2" rain. The wind is blowier, I dint know that little tree out front could move back and forth so much! One of the big trees threw a couple minor branches at the wind, but tht dint stop it anny. Innerestingly, the hummer birds seem able ta fly in all this just fine. I been watchin the feeder at the deck an Ayla been watching the one near the basement front window.
8:45 PM - Wow, 3.5 " of rain now. The TV guy says we may get 6". Its getting blowier, too! I occurred to TBT that the hummer bird was sitting at the feeder all the time cuz it is both under the roof and on the unwindy side of the house. Smart little birdie!
9:45 PM - Well, we just got to 4" of rain. And apparently we are just getting a band of heavy rain over us that should last an hour. It sure is NOISEY!
