I lucked out this morning. I came back from grocery shopping yesterday and it was raining fairly hard so I opted not to get my snow tires out of the shed for installation today. When I went out this morning, it was just spitting a little bit and I didn't get wet. So if some of the rain turns to snow, I'll have the correct tires on my car!
It's really dark here right now but not raining, though the wind is starting to pick up. The local conservation authority has put out flood warnings because so much rain is expected tonight and tomorrow. I'm a little worried about my Dad - he lives in a very treed, rural area and depends on a sump pump to keep his basement dry. He's got a generator but needs help to get it going. I know the neighbours will give him a hand, if needed, but I still worry a little bit. I'm not worried about food for him - he's got camping gear and a grill and a covered spot outside to set them up, if needed. He'll have lots of stuff in the freezer and lots of canned soups and with the generator going, he can get water from the well. He's also got supplemental wood heating so he's actually better off than me since I don't have an alternate heat source.
