11/23/2005: "Rough night"
It's 3:00am and I'm still awake with horrid stomach pains (probably stress related) from very strong winds that shake my house, make scary noises like stuff coming apart, and it's all making it impossible for me to sleep. The power has gone out twice already. I'll need to shut down my computer soon; the lights are still out but my TV and computer are working again. What's up?
Anyway, there is a high wind warning for Juneau, I don't feel good enough to go down and check my boat so I'm just hoping the lines are still tight from the last time I was down there. I watched 2 PBS shows in a row tonight (Nova and Frontline) both about Hurricane Katrina. The program kept getting interrupted by the emergency broadcast system with the high wind warnings.
We've had record rain, there is some flooding around town and a few mud slides, one that took out a house downtown and there are more homes in danger if the rain doesn't let up soon, but there is only more and more rain in the foreseeable future.
I love living in Douglas, but there are times I question why I ever decided to move to Alaska in the first place...
OK, enough bitching. I'm going to go see if I can hurl.
