I woke up this morning to the sound of rain and wind and occasional thumping. Er... every so often when the wind picks up i can hear stuff thumping around outside, it _sounds_ close, but i don't see anything on our balcony that seems _particularly_ well inclined to getting thumped around by the wind so maybe the sound is just carrying better than i think.
Oh, wait, it's the laundry alcove doors! They didn't seem to have actually been closed, so the wind was opening and cIosing them, i just couldn't see them because of the angle from this window. Um, our washer and dryer are now somewhat wet and dirty, but since i haven't actually used the washer and dryer (and hence the doors) in about a week i'm going to claim that it's not my fault, cause i don't want to stand out in the rain and clean them (though i did latch the doors shut of course) :)
