Isaac is here. He is actually lovely. The rain began this morning around 4:00 with just a whisper, and it has continued like that. It feels like a benediction. At the moment the radar map shows a gigantic feathery swirl reaching up here and into the northwest — with the larger hot-spots still remaining in the southeast. So we may still get clobbered — but at the moment this feels like heaven, after the inferno of the summer.
So, with compassion for those others who got hit harder, in this household we are grateful today.
And the picture of what life may come to be like in this household continues to develop. As the storm approached, the boys started fighting in earnest, so time-out and separation overnight seemed called-for. Today, though, is what looks as close to ideal as I ever hope to see.
Barnes, taking up space. Together, enjoying the gentle rain.
