We fared well during this storm even though, unfortunately, others did not. There was torrential rain Saturday night and Sunday morning; gusty wind most of Sunday, then tapered off toward the evening.
We didn't lose power even though much of the town, and neighboring towns did. There are lots of branches down all over the yard, and one (dead) tree down on the edge of the yard/woods. We had an automated message from the police department last night telling us which roads would be blocked off today because of downed trees and power lines. Hmm, I wonder if this will affect the first day of school tomorrow?
Our house must be in some sort of sheltered place because I remember a few years ago there was a microburst tornado that passed through town. Our house/yard, and the cul-de-sac beside us, looked fairly normal when it was over. We thought it was just a bad thunderstorm. I drove up town to get some pizza after, and was shocked at all the damage around town!
So, praise the Lord for his protection and safety, and I pray those up and down the East Coast will receive the help they need as quickly as possible.
(I will post about the tag swap on Rednesday.)
