safe and sound

We got very lucky and survived the storm intact -- and with power! I suppose we can be thankful for the derecho (land hurricane) we had over the summer that wiped out our power for almost four days. The derecho took down most of the trees and branches that were going to fall. As a result, this time there wasn't much blowing around to knock down power lines. Newspaper boxes,on the other hand....
And those pictures of the retaining pond near us that I posted yesterday? We walked by it and it's less full than it was yesterday! We really got lucky. My friends in New York are looking at weeks of clean-up and days without power. You're all in my thoughts. 
The plants are still indoors because we're not quite sure that the wind has calmed down completely. But at least I won't have to dress up like this again to go outside tomorrow! 
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers over the last few days!


  1. So glad you weathered the storm with few problems! Sandy went easy on Richmond, so I also lucked out.

  2. We're so, so glad to hear you guys are not having to deal with a huge amount of storm-related difficulty. Hooray for coming through it unscathed.

  3. YAY!! Glad you have no sharks swimming up on your patio ;)


Please be kind :o)
