  2. Hurricane-like winds with waves of sheet rain coming down at the school. This raging storm is intensifying. Phone lines are going out, then back on, then back out again. Tree debris and fallen branches everywhere. Fortunately, we are up on a plateau between Plaskett and Pruitt Creeks which gives a margin for flooding issues.

  3. The intense drama of the hurling rain, the fierceness of the cleansing wind, isolating this world from the invasion along the fragile ribbon of coast road, keeping trespassers at bay from this magnificent kingdom by the sea.
    Solace, natural gusting Creator of quiet and isolation, ahhh… Peace.
