Large amounts of wind and rain enveloped our bit of the world yesterday. It didn't take long for our electric to go out and it will probably be many many days before my power is restored.
We are fine however since we have a generator, but the comforts of home just got and are going to get a bit less comfortable. It's going to be 90 degree's today and we can't run our AC since out generator isn't quite powerful enough!
That is not to say that I am complaining really! I know there are people who lost their lives yesterday; three in fact right here in our very own Commonwealth of Virginia. And many who lost their homes to fallen trees and rain or floods and I certainly don't mean to make light of their tragedies.
For today however our neck of the woods is just a bit greener even where it shouldn't be green since along with the rain and the wind the leaves blew like crazy all day yesterday!
Did you get hit by any of it or were you out of the storm zone? And if you did get the storm, how's things by you?
update The county government just called (1:30 pm) to advise us that 85% of the county residents are without power and it wasn't likely the power would be restored for 5-7 days. Oh happy day!
