4/4/14 Friday Arley, AL (Hidden Cove-TT/MA)
We knew that a big storm would happen overnight but I forgot to check all the windows so one was left open. Of course, that’s the windowsill where I keep my laptop computer. Early in the dark of morning, as I was wondering why this storm seemed so much louder than usual (big wind gusts as well), I thought maybe I left some window open? Dashing into our living room I found that one window open, sick to realize that the water was all over our playing cards, my papers and computer. After shutting it I unplugged my laptop, got it to a dryer place, dried the windowsill, spread the papers then crawled back into bed. When we got up that morning I found all sorts of water draining out of my computer whenever I picked it up to wipe different areas so I figured it may well have water inside. I took out the battery and set it aside to dry, with a little help from a fan. Justin suggested I simply let it set for several days, thus without my laptop I couldn’t blog.
We spent the morning playing cards (we found a couple new decks) with one another, then the afternoon talking with our new friends Connie and Wyann. We’re all leaving Saturday.
