They said it was coming and I caught this shot
from my living room window 2 days ago. They
said we wouldn't get anything from this giant
storm, that it would be east of us.
I woke at1AM to no power and high winds of
50 mpr and more. I could hear things
crashing and falling outside. When
daylight came, still no power and freezing cold.
I put the puppies in some sweaters that were suppose to
be Teddy's gifts last Christmas. For those who don't
know Teddy was my precious Bichon who passed away
right before Christmas. The sweaters are a little big but
they helped. Outside the wind was still gusting and the temps were
still dropping. I went from window to window and saw the
destruction. My beautiful cedar arbor which was new was now in
pieces on the ground (and it had been anchored to bricks).
Tree branches. lawn furniture all strewn about.
Talking to a neighbor on the road below, she said trees had come down
on the power lines and had started two fires. She is still without
power. Mine came back on around noon.
They huddled together all day and were terrified from the
sounds of the wind howling outside.
On a cheery note I finished making my own envelopes
Here they are waiting for the glue to dry.
Some of the finished ones.
And some cards all finished , packaged and
ready to go.
Figured since there were trees hanging over the power lines
on the road, I'd stay home and finish some projects.
I even cleaned my big desk top.
They say we are in for it again tonight so maybe
I'll get more done. You never know.
