Hurricane Madeline is Here
So here I sit, listening to the rain and intermittent wind. Things are fairly ho-hum. I've gotten less than 1/2" of rain so far, but according to the weather radar, the big rain is yet to come. In anticipation of heavy rain and wind, I emptied the catchment tanks by 2 feet and made sure that the covers were on tight.. Just a safety precaution. Other than that, there wasn't much to do in preparation. I already have plenty of drinking water, food, gasoline, and propane stored up. The livestock are always secured. I've already removed any suspect trees. So I'll just have to sleep tonight and hope for the best.
