I heard a sound last night about midnight that sounded like a large tree falling and I even looked out my bedroom window and didn't see anything. Even when I went to my car this morning I didn't see anything. When I came home from work, a very tall pine tree had been torn out by the roots and fell on a neighbor's house but it did not appear to have damaged it....the tree was uprooted with a huge piece of dirt and it looked like it just tipped over onto the house across the street.
The wind has died down somewhat compared to last night and I hope when I go to bed shortly (8:00 p.m.) I get a decent night's sleep. Everyone at work was pretty tired today...I guess the wind did a number on a lot of people. Some people lost their power and quite a few traffic lights were out of order today, too.
One good thing, though, it's Thursday tomorrow and then Friday!!!!
There is a tree growing too close to my bedroom window and we are having violent winds starting yesterday. Last night (last report I heard) there were gusts up to 48 miles per hour. So there's this small tree growing too close to the house by one of my bedroom windows and I could have sworn it sounded like a squirrel crawling around and scratching inside the wall and this morning I went outside and thought a large tree had fallen on the house but it was just this tree scraping the window and side of the house.
Needles to say, I didn't sleep very well cause with every big gust of wind I was wide awake.....
Tonight before I go to bed I am going out there and cut off the branches that touch the house...hope I can eliminate at least most of the irritating noise.....
CPAP is helping me a lot and I hope to get caught up on at least some of my sleep debt. I am grateful I did not have to wait any longer to get help for my sleep difficulties as I was getting so run down and felt weak and tired most of the time. This weekend I got almost 24 hours (actually 23) of sleep and am feeling so much better.
I am glad I am living in an era of modern medicine as I probably wouldn't have survived to this ripe old age of 64 had I been born 100 years earlier.
P.S. I had a recipe accepted on Sparkrecipes.com...it is called Chipotle Egg Sandwich...it has mushrooms and low fat cheese and is a tasty breakfast (I had it yesterday and today).... LMK if you like it.
