Currently, we are living on storm-time. That is the hiatus between having provisions laid in and actually needing them because the power is out. It is the antsy time of loose handles (as in flying off of) and watching the cat to see if her fear escalates. So far, our company is comforting to her.
When she seeks a black hole to hide herself in, it's duck and cover season. Time to hunker down.
We're pretty well hunkered, already . . .
