Well it appears that my post from Sunday night was published, three times no less (the extra two are now deleted), though I had no feedback that it had done so. A storm was blowing through the islands off and on through the weekend with steady and at times heavy rain. I have read of localized flooding, landslides and trees blown down. The power went off last night and was down for 8 hours, the internet for 18 and has only just come back on.

As I said here, we have poor cell reception where we live and a spot outside allows for scratchy connection to the internet with little going through.

Without the distraction of the online world, I disappeared deeper into journaling this morning. The time spent there was welcome.
