What are you doing New Year's Eve? I will be sitting in my dry little house in the redwoods while the rain continues to pour down around me and will probably keep me marooned for a couple of days. The road to town has left me stranded already, and probably is under water again. In a few more hours, the river will probably overflow while the rains continue, and even if I could get through the flooded road, the river flooding would keep me from getting through town or to anywhere in the tiny little place. Goodby mail delivery for a few days. Well, it looks like a good time to catch up on piano practice and composing. If the power does not fail (a frequent occurence here) I might even get the music entered into my computer. For safey, I will print off a few more pages of blank manuscript paper now, while I can. I don't mind the rain, keeps the tourists away and the deer get enough water that they don't need to eat the foliage in my gardens!
