I sit in the warm house keeping the tea hot and the fire blazing while my husband and son tear down what is left of our side fence. The storm two days ago knocked down half of it and started throwing pieces of our wood shed around. All during that storm the kids and I sat in the house preparing for a power outage as the wind raged over head and branches fell from the trees above our house and scraped across our roof.
We lost power for all of one minute. It was an amazing storm though.
Down the street our neighbors suffered damage to their things too. One man we know had a branch the size of a small tree fall in front of his garage. I haven't yet talked to him to make sure his car wasn't under it.
Another storm is predicted for this weekend. This one is supposed to include snow. Welcome White Winter! Please, be gentle.
