The wind apparently reached hurricane strength last night, and it certainly sounded like it. Its much calmer today, though still grey and rainy. Captain B valiantly rode out and bought back some shopping, so we won't be reduced to drawing lots to see which of us eats the other.
I was up in the early hours, unable to sleep - arthritis pain. And the lights were flickering. We had a tray of candles, matches and a torch on standby in the hall. However, thankfully, it was not needed.
I am feeling a bit stir-crazy,and that is perhaps a hopeful sign recoverywise, though the last time the feeling was followed by a bit of relapse. Time will tell.
