A Windy "Non-Event"

It was good and noisy here about 2 a.m. The wind finally got more serious, and for about 3 1/2 hours, it was howling. It's still blowing blue blazes, but from the NNW now. As far as I can tell, the power didn't even flicker.

The worst casualty here was sleep, particularly for our 4-month-old labrador puppy. She's beside herself still, this morning - torn between fascination with the blowing leaves (she wants to chase them) and anxiety about the strangeness. On the other hand, the stray cat we brought inside to shelter in a spare bedroom looks perfectly relaxed. Go figure. He'll probably want to stay.

All in all, I'd have to call this a "non-event" in Katy, particularly in comparison to expectations a few days ago. I'm really very tired of hurricanes now.
