08:09 – Barbara called around 8:15 last night when she arrived at her dad’s place after having dinner with her friend. Her dad is doing pretty well, and she said her mom is doing better. Frances is staying with their dad tonight, so Barbara will be back home this evening.

We had lots of rain last night, starting around 7:00 and lasting through about midnight. The expected strong storms never arrived, in the sense that there wasn’t any lightning or thunder to speak of, but the winds were pretty high. Apparently, some places locally had gusts of 60+ MPH (96+ KPH). I didn’t get much sleep, because every 10 or 20 minutes through the night Colin would start barking like crazy, jump down off the bed, and run to the front door.
