We Made It!

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

We made it thru the night. What a night, i dont think i slept more then an hour the entire night. Wind able to take a wood pile over including moving cement blocks,wouldnt believe it if i didnt see it! We lost 2 huge trees,thankfully fell opposite of the house. We had a alot of yard work to do this morning. Including getting creek water for toilets,up a steep incline. I did all that after getting a 3.25 mile walk in. The rail trail had a few trees down,lots of branches,which i made into a workout,kicking them off the trail. Power just came back on,yeahhh! We have a generator,woodstove,we were fine,but something about the power back on makes you and your neighbors cheer!

    I don't know why, but I hate to be in a house without power. It feels like the walls are closing in on me. I am glad to hear that you and your family are safe and sound. I know my parents in NY state are safe, if a little cold in the meantime. They never lost power, thankfully.

It's a gorgeous day here in FL again. High today is only 71, but I just did some walking outside and the breeze is still kicking up a fuss. Breeze isn't the right word - wind. The wind is leaning trees over and making my ponytail fly!

Be careful today as you clean up. Never know what you will find!

    Wow! So many close calls! How frightening that must have been, hearing all that! Well done getting some cleaning up workouts in! That is good to hear there were no damages for your house or property. That was a quick response getting the power back on, but great you were prepared for it.
Hope the worst of it is over for you!
