The Aftermath

Well, we survived Irene with only a few fallen tree limbs and several roof shingles splayed across our front yard. Our neighbors had a tree fall on their car and another neighbor had two giant trees miss their house by only a few feet. They said it was like an atomic bomb went off...the noise was deafening. The wind howled all night, but we made the best of it as my neighbors hosted a hurricane party!
Wish I could upload pictures, however I'm on the iPad as power is out here. They said that power won't be restored for several days so we are playing board games, walking the neighborhood and cleaning up the yard. It actually is very pretty outside right now. Unfortunately, we have no water because we are on a well, so no showers for us!

So thankful the storm has passed and you are all safe. Sorry for the damage, but I know it could have been so much worse. Hope the power is back on soon. Hugs, Marty

So glad you are safe. The party idea does sound kind of fun. Maybe a survival party is in order. :) As for the no showers issue all I can say is another layer of deodorant and dry shampoo. :)
Hugs and good thoughts,

Happy to hear everyone's safe. Without power, you'll be amazed at how much you'll get done around the house. :)

Really glad to hear you're okay! What an ordeal for you!! I have another online friend living in VA that had a hurricane party too. She had a tree fall onto her roof, but they're all okay.
