Fay's Silver Lining

It's blustery outside and the screen on the window keeps flexing in and out. There are rain drops splattered on the window--even up at the very top. It's very overcast and the clouds are low and moving fast. Rain comes in sideways and only stays for a few minutes, then moves on. Tropical Storm Fay is passing by.

At 7:01am this morning I answered Kenneth's phone. It woke me out of a dead sleep and it was his work calling to say the office would be closed today. Stay home and be safe. The news has been all about this storm, covering every moment. For us, it seems like nothing more than a long, drawn-out thunder storm. But we got to spend the morning at home together. For today, that's my silver lining in the clouds.
