I cannot even express...

the emotions that this storm are engendering.  Really?  Again?

The gutters have been cleaned, and the downspouts extended further from the foundation.  We have five gallons of water pulled off for drinking, and fifteen for flushing.  The woodbox is almost full.  We have batteries and flashlights.  This year, I have a temperature sensitive fish.  Sigh.

I know - I've been entirely absent for about three months.  It's been busy, and I start feeling guilty about catching up.  So I'm going to jettison the guilt, and just pick back up.

Hopefully not with another storm disaster.  Think good thoughts for my trees - especially the ones right next to the house...

I was thinking about you quite a bit recently. Glad to hear from you. Hope you are not transported to the 19th century again.

Our thoughts are with you, darling. Be safe.

At least this year there won't be snow. Wind, yes. Power outages, probably. But no snow. I *hope* no snow means you keep the rest of your trees!

Hope you fare better than we did. The house is fine, I'm told (I'm in VT for a conference, driving home now), with the only damage being one of the slats on the side porch.

The suburu however was parked right where the neighbor's willow decided to fall. Two of the boles are on their side of the fence, on leaning on their house, and the other three are in our yard having taken out some of the privacy fence, and one lying on the car. There is a broken rear window with a branch through it, and a dent in the roof. So we won't know until the neighbor's tree guy gets it off the car whether the damage is cosmetic or functional. Himself did not go to work today.

Do you have a generator this time around?

Kind of. Dad has one for me that hasn't come to live at my house yet. I figured if it looked like we were in for the long haul again, I'd call and ask him to bring it up. That was comforting to know.
