Later, after the storm had subsided, I was helping some people install a homemade antenna array. This antenna was odd in that it was a series of wires that went up and down long poles and then got tied to stakes in the ground. It was like a mix between sailing rigging and long wave antenna design. And to complete the metaphor, the final step was to attach taught canvas between the wires. As I was tying up the canvas, pulling it very very tight, the metal take across the way from me kept pulling out of the ground from the tension, so there was a bizarre comedy as various helpers pushed stakes back in and other ones came out. It led me to think there were perhaps serious design flaws in this antenna, whose plan was this anyway? Maybe it made more sense in a different region/climate where the ground had different characteristics. How would these "sails" hold up in another hurricane anyway?
Then someone commented about a special kind of cloud you could see after a storm. And we looked up and there it was. It was shaped like some kind of abstract lizard or gecko or something and just just slid around the sky in zigzags and loops and we ran around the yard chasing after it trying to get a better view.
Then I woke up and it was VERY windy.
