This is the “UGLY”. It’s been something like 19 hours straight and it is getting on my nerves.
6 am to 6 pm my butt. It started last night probably around 9 pm. Hubby was in bed and I yelled up to him asking if that noise was the wind. When you are in a 43.5-foot tin can and you have wind gusts of 40 mph and it is night outside it has to be in the back of your head, what is the worst that can happen?
We went to sleep but the wind did not stop and periodically it woke us up. Close to morning, it seemed like the wind had slowed down a bit, but that was short-lived.
As I sit here on the 19th hour and the tin can is rocking and rolling with each huge wind gust, I plead with mother nature to just STOP IT. It is on my nerves.
The wind advisory below says it will stop at 6 PM. A big wind gust just rocked us.

My eyes divert to the lake often. There are white caps on this small lake. Hubby teases that he is going to hang 10 on the lake.
It’s probably been 15 minutes since the last wind gust. Maybe this weather has moved on. Maybe mother nature has given me the long-awaited break I’ve been waiting for. It’s still windy but it’s quiet now. And the quiet although it seems strange I like it.
