Tagged as NJ Walters, writing

As I sit here at my desk and ponder what to write, the winds are whipping up the trees outside, threatening to rip the leaves from them. Fog is rolling across the hills and rain is coming down. There is a tropical storm that is threatening to be a category 1 hurricane headed our way. [...]
