Sorry to have this post so delayed. Last night, a massive windstorm hit the area we live and nearly decimated the city. Hurricane-force winds caused trees to fall across powerlines, across roads, across houses… the entire city is without power. All the hospitals (there are 4 of them) and such are running off of generators. The media is calling this the storm of the century.
There are no large trees in our yard and we were very safe in our house. Unfortunately, our dock is entirely ruined from the 10 foot waves that were knocking it around for hours yesterday. Our the dirt behind our sea-wall has washed away and the wall is falling in. Though this is not at all good, I keep thinking of how fortunate we are when compared to others who had trees crashing through their houses.
Mercifully, our power came on about a half hour ago, which is absolutely a miracle. We live 30 miles away from the nearest large city and are usually on the bottom of the priority list. I am half afraid that the power will go out again as the repair men try to repair all the broken transformers and snapped lines!
As for writing…it’s going very well! I didn’t get much done yesterday with the power out, but that’s okay. I’ll catch up today.
Hope you are all doing well and nasty storms are leaving you alone! :)
