Woke up to a surprise—the twin doors that open onto the living room from the bedroom were wide open (& they open in). Apparently when “Gloria” blew through Wash. before dawn it did that.

A brief meeting with P.M. Gonzalez of Spain then into a jam session on the upcoming Shevardnadze meeting. He arrived at 10 A.M.—a 2 hr. meeting, then I had 10 min’s. alone with him & then lunch (St. Dining Room) until 1:30. He’s a personable fellow but we had our differences. My goal was to send him back to Gorbachev with a message that I really meant “arms reductions” and I wasn’t interested in any détente nonsense. For the 1st time they talked of real verification procedures.

After lunch George S., Bud & I met preparing now for King Husseins visit Mon.

Afternoon, hurricane Gloria blew away, the sky is blue, the sun is shining and Nancy will be home at 6:40. It’s an answer to a prayer and I mean it. Gloria shifted course a little and the threatened disaster melted away. There was some coastal damage but no deaths, few if any injuries and all’s well with the world.
