Entry No. 5,526

We woke this morning to a rainy, blustery autumn day, and to a tornado watch. While Spooky was making breakfast, I was sitting at my desk and a terrific wind suddenly blew over the mountain. I thought for just a moment that it actually was an approaching tornado. There was a sound, almost like that sound. And then there was another sound, a loud, rolling crack, and the top half of a tree across the street came crashing down, blocking the entire road. The wind died away almost immediately.

It was half an hour or so before the city got chainsaws in the clear it.

Really, that was the only part of today worth remembering.
