Windy… and how!

Saturday, March 4, 2023

Today, the sun is shining and we have a clear blue sky.  But yesterday… boy, oh, boy!  It was an unpleasant day.  We had wind gusts over 50 mph (80 kph).  And it rained…hard.  We received 3″ of rain, (76mm) and it came down in waves.   It would rain so hard you could barely see, then it would let up for a while, then pound us again.  We lost a few more shingles off the roof of the house.  I think the hardest part of yesterday’s thunderstorms was the relentless wind.

Here is Kevin Orpurt from Channel 10 in Terre Haute reporting on the wind yesterday. Notice the strongest was in our part of SWIN.

But now, this morning, the wind is calm, there is a bit of frost on the roof, and the sunshine is brilliant!  Quite a contrast to yesterday.

As I work in the office this morning, catching up the day’s invoices, the bright sun is streaming in the windows.

We didn’t get much accomplished outside yesterday.  John and Brandon did some work on the Pete in the shop, but it was just too execrable to be outside yesterday.

Today is 12 weeks and 3 days post-knee-replacement.  What I’m noticing today is stiffness, not pain.  Is is pain free?  No.  But it has gained quite a bit in just the last 2-3 days.  One exception:  Wednesday evening, the pain was really bad, but much better Thursday when the day started. I don’t know what I did to cause that pain, but I hope those kind of evenings don’t return!

Have a wonderful weekend.
