Snack day yesterday, so moving on....
It was also Christmas Eve, and the boss kindly let us go home early, so I left about noon, after finishing up my e-mail. It was nice to be home since it was starting to get windy, and I did encounter a few drops on the way....and then around 4 or so it just started coming in, wind, rain, sleet! I heard a loud clatter on the roof, that just kept going "thud, thud, thud" and while I gave consideration to Santa and the reindeer, it really was much too early for that!
Then it made a loud noise and sounded like someone (or something) was running across the roof to the other side of the house! And I did find the shingles this morning....along with our neighbors 60 gallon recycle can in our front yard. Later I found both our garbage cans had toppled over and were about 10 feet from where they started, quite the powerful wind!
We were planning on a Christmas ski today, but it's probably too late at this point, so maybe we'll just hit it on the way home from my sister's (tomorrow?, Saturday?) either way, it should be good, Larry said they got another 5 inches out of yesterday.
I had to go back into work this morning, I forgot my i-pod!
but now I have it back, and all is right with my world! The roads were OK for the most part, a few spots of ice here and there, but mostly dry.
Larry and I at my company Christmas party earlier this month. I wanted to post the photo montage he made of our year, but it's a PDF and won't post!
