I can hear the wind outside. Through my skylights, I can watch the trees directly above my attic apartment shake in said wind. I think about how most of my most treasured belongings are in this room. The Midwest is looking at a wind storm of epic proportions. Like, maybe 60 mph winds? I'm walking to work today instead of biking.
*SOUTH TO SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS OF 30 TO 40 MPH ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP BEHIND A COLD FRONT THAT WILL MOVE THROUGH SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN THIS AFTERNOON.
* THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR SOUTHWESTERLY WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 60 MPH IMMEDIATELY ALONG AND BEHIND THE COLD FRONT.* WINDS OF THIS MAGNITUDE MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO TREES AND TREE LIMBS. TRAVEL MAY BECOME DIFFICULT TO HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES. –weather.com
Did I mention that Emma and I live in an attic? We don't have access to the basement, as far as I know Good thing I'll be at work until four o'clock. We've got a basement there. I just hope I don't have to hide in the walk-in freezer. Emma says if it comes down to it, she'll come to the restaurant and hide in the basement with me, since we don't really have one. She'd even hide in the freezer with me. Thank god I can't think of a reason to be in the freezer, 'cause I definitely don't want to be in it. That thing is COLD. If full of cheesecake.
