Things are pretty much back to normal following Hurricane Irene. I understand that there is another possible hurricane heading toward the Carolinas so we may have more to come.
We got our power back at midnight, Wednesday morning. We were very fortunate because my son didn’t get his till the next day and one of our friends didn’t get hers till the day following that!
When the power came on, I actually shouted for joy…then I immediately started cleaning… the bathrooms, the dishes, …it was 3:00 a.m. before I went to bed. The next day it was a shower for Lynn, then me, then more clothes to wash. I think I finally felt like we were back to normal around Friday (though it still looks pretty trashy outside).
This weekend, as I surveyed the land right around our house, we had three large trees go down. We were very fortunate not to have anything hit the house. That is especially true since we have a number of large trees in our front yard that could cause quite a bit of damage if they went down. If that happened, we might just be building a new home sooner than later. Glad we aren’t being faced with that crisis.
