Oh, that's a wise title, Twins'. I hope this dissipates before it hits you too hard. The winds should have a hard time sustaining past the mountains, I would think. (?) But I assume the rains will still be long and arduous for you, too. This thing is just so big.
Here we've had an all-night performance of the violent storm that started yesterday and doesn't know when to quit. For a while, winds were 40 mph, but that's over. If it wasn't for the impressive audio, I'd hardly have known what my weather was doing when I woke, since it was still dark here, at an hour it should have been bright. Our trees are still doing the hula, sometimes wildly, but not breaking as far as I can see, which is not very far. But I can see that our vehicles are fine. Nothing seems to have hit the house. And obviously the power lines to my house are holding up.
there is a flock of wild turkeys close to the house. Odd. I suppose the full wind protection of a wall of the house is nice for them.
emails warned us yesterday not to attempt going to the church. Morning and evening cancelled, which was pretty much a given, but of course it had to be said.
