It's been pretty interesting on the north shore of STX, mid-island. Super windy--definitely gusts of more than 30 mph--and bouts of torrential rain. Been going on for a few days, and looks like it will last for another half-day. That, complemented by the long power outages, has made for some not-so-pleasant time.

And, I'm watching the biggest waves off my gallery I've ever seen (save hurricane season, of course).

Sweats and socks for sure!!!!!!

Had to close all windows and doors for the first time since moving here. The wind barrels into my house on a NOT al day - was knocking things off walls and tables!

Love the energy of this TD. Kinda wanted to dive to paddleboard today lol but I guess I'll work instead. Cisterns are nice and full though.
