Hello There, Electricity

Wow.  I am so happy to be back behind this little computer of mine!  Hurricane Irene came and decided she didn't want us to have electricity for 4 days now.  I am staying at my brother's house tonight to keep from going stir crazy without power.

Take a look at the scene from my front door Saturday morning when Irene had her fun.

My poor little maple didn't know what hit it!  Fortunately, the 2 year old tree survived. 

The storm really was pretty scary.  A large majority of Virginia lost power and many are still without.  We were very fortunate our damage was rather minimal compared to some.  I am crossing my fingers when I go home tomorrow the power will be restored!


  1. so glad to hear you're okay. I can't believe it's been 4 days, I would go stir crazy too!!!

  2. glad you're o.k...
    yes, it does get hard-even a day without would make me stir crazy ;)

  3. I've learned one day is all I can take without power easily. I'd never been so grateful to hear it come on. Hope you've gotten it back by now!
