The sound of KA-BANG is not a good sound to wake up to.
In the last year, the sound of KA-BANG has gotten Ken and I out of bed, in the dark of the night, twice now.
KA-BANG is bigger than things that go bump in the night. KA-BANG in the night is never good.
Every body talks about the weather but, nobody does anything about it, and there isnâ€™t much you can do about weather related KA-BANGS.
One of the reasons I like living on the coast is because of the weather. For the most part it is quite mild here.
We live in a rain forest. We get rain.
We also live on a hill (hence the view), and we get wind. The wind rolls up the hill like a howlingâ€¦ well, like wind will do. (A good writer would have a better description.)
I donâ€™t mind the rain â€” the wind I can do without.
For me, big wind is down right scary.
Our house is built well enough and we are safe, the big trees around us probably wonâ€™t come down around us. we’ve only lost power once since weâ€™ve lived here, and that was last night for about an hour.
Yet, the wind and the giant KA-BANG, had Ken and I up and outside, in the wind, at 4:30 this morning.
I held the flashlight while Ken tied things down. A big KA-BANG was the sound of the the stronger than tarp like canopy and frame, the van is parked under, ripping out of the ground.
That sucker is like a huge kite on nights when the wind blows. It is down right scary. (Did I already say that?)
Plus, Iâ€™m going to the dentist, so here’s hoping the power stays on and I don’t hear any more KA-BANGS
They say the month of March comes in like a lion. Well, up here on Samron Rd. itâ€™s coming in more like a fucking big ass dragon. (A good writer would have a better description!)
