Eye of the storm /heh

Sunday starts out quiet and gray. Up and outside early. Nursing morning coffee carried down low around belt line in a Chief's finger crook. Puttering on the new patio, chipping clear the openings to set covers in a couple irrigation valve boxes cast into the new deck. Clearing drain covers of masking tape and concrete slag. Testing and treating the pool. Hosing down the new concrete.

The calm before the... Well you know.

It'll build to a crescendo as the day goes on.

First things first. Off to church in the morning. Then back home for final cleanup and setup. There's big doings here later in the afternoon. Family and friends are coming over to celebrate the Son&Heir's graduation. The spousal wife unit tells me about 70 have responded in the affirmative.

Batten down the hatches, secure all weather decks for heavy seas. Stow all loose gear and lash down all over heads. Standby for heavy rolls.
