Could be worse; could be raining!

After the storm, several pepper plants were lying flat on the ground.

I lost a few tomatoes.

But down the road and around the corner, they were dealing with this fallen tree.

Another neighbor had this in her yard.

Yet another had a tree branch sticking into the roof like a spear.

Some streets were impassible.

Power was out most of the day. We were lucky there, too; nearby neighborhoods were still out of power all day Saturday. We had fans and lights by Friday night.
I had to climb into a garage window to manually open the door. Shingles from the garage roof litter the lawn. But really, it could be much, much worse. We're pretty lucky this time.


Digg! Stumble It! add to kirtsy

Wish I could have seen you climbing into the garage window . . .
Happy that all turned out well for you and your place!
