|My deck! Branches down every|
Mid morning the storm hit. It was so so dark, like midnight, as they say. The street lights were on. As I walked through the house, you could feel the low pressure of the storm system. It is always eery during these storms. We didn't lose electricity but it did flicker like we would. We are so used to conditions during a hurricane. This looked and felt just like a hurricane! My guess is that we had at least 70 mph straight line winds in this system.
The trees where whipping wildly. The robocall from the city came, I think I have only gotten two others in the last 5 years.
Before it hit, I called Carrie. We usually have to deal with poor Hugeaux, he is terrified during storms. I did not have enough time to get to him safely. He was on his own.
|This branch is from another tree!|
|Branches in the yard|
The nursing home my mom is in just called and said they are fine, no power loss and no damage.
|My patio debris|

I just began to hear the birds again. There is a squirrel nest down that makes DiNozzo ecstatic! I can't even lure him in with the promise of treats!
Let me start getting some of the branches up and check the fenceline for escape routes.
Glad there was not a lot of building damage. It is so calm now. Odd, this calmness after the energy of the storm. But I'll take it!
