Ivan The Terrible Comes Calling

It's coming, Ivan will be here by morning. Already the outer bands are coming just into the south of town, I'm as far north as you can be and still remain in the city limits. It lurched to the east just a bit a couple of hours ago, which puts it closer to us than it was expected to be. We're supposed to get upwards of a foot of rain tomorrow and up to 70 MPH winds. We'll likely lose power, and probably the phone if the power goes. That's generally how it is here.

I've got plenty of candles, there is food in the pantry and many books and magazines to keep me occupied. As long as the power doesn't go out before I get coffee in the morning, everything should be fine. I cannot guarantee the safety of the children should I be denied caffeine in the morning. Tomorrow is going to be a lazy day, the kids and I will probably stay in our pajamas. I'll build them a fort to play in and we'll be completely insane from the cabin fever by evening.

I'm going to watch the weather channel for a few minutes before trying to get to bed, sleep tight all and have nice dreams...
