So far, so good. We have yet to experience high winds but we have had a steady, sometimes driving rain here at Little Pond. The local forecasters are calling for the wind to pick up this afternoon. Weston and I played outside in the rain this morning between cloudbursts. There's nothing quite like swimming in the kiddie pool while it is raining. Let me clarify: Weston played in the pool, I watched outside from underneath a large golf umbrella.

Here's my 12:00 update.

Mt. Mica Observatory:
Temperature: 67.6
Pressure: 29.55 inches
Winds: 6.3 gusting to 8 mph.
Rainfall: 2.64 inches

Little Androscoggin at South Paris:

Gauge Height: 3.05 feet
Discharge: 93 cubic feet per second. (twice as much water since 8am this morning, three times as much water as yesterday evening)

Will the winds come? Will we loose power? I'll check back in at 5:00 p.m. And if that doesn't happen, you'll know that we're in the dark!
