Really.... I'm Still Here

If anyone missed the storm that blasted from the midwest through the DC area, well, I didn't.

Friday night there were high winds, sheets of rain, and continual lightning, followed by trees down, structural damage and power outages.

Mine came back around 42 hours after it went off.  And I'm one of the luckier ones.

I'm trying to find my notes and I hope to be back on track for tomorrow morning.


  1. It alway tickles me how mankind has tried for 1,000 years to stop mother nature. Some think they have control of her. Then one day all hell breaks loose, Tornados, hurricanes, forest fires, etc. And the best safest way is just get the heck out of the way! We then, build better safer places to hide "for the next time" but we will never control the worse disasters. We can only hope people can be warned of it coming, and find a safe haven.

  2. Meg, glad to hear you're safe. Fortunately, it sounds like the storm was mostly an inconvenience for you.

    Bad storms in Chicago yesterday (nothing like your area but bad enough). My wife and I were talking about what we would do if we lost power for an extended period (two of our kids are disabled). We've never lost power for more than a few hours (talk about being lucky) but it is something to plan for.

    Take care.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
