The storm is over, and we are safe and feel very lucky.
We weathered through the long high wind storm without any major problems. Miraculously, my neighborhood has power despite power failures in almost all neighborhoods for miles around. Traffic lights are out and most stores are closed in all of the neighboring towns!. Most of our friends do not have power, the schools and most people's place of employment still lack power as of Thursday!
The Sprint Towers are out , so we do not have cell phone power.
Other than that, we only lost a tree, which is minor compared to what happened to some of our neighbors.
A part of our tree split and broke off and will require some major clean up, but many of our neighbor's trees ripped out of the roots and dug up the entire area of their yard. Scary!!

|another scary one..|
Just for the fun of it, I took a picture of my neighbor's tree before the storm , then I took a picture this morning after the storm. It is still in one piece, but most of the leaves are gone overnight!

I know that many people have not been as lucky. Many are without power, some are flooded, many in deep snow..
Our thoughts are with you, and we pray for your safety and that all will be well soon.!
Please let us know how your are...
