Uprooted

The storm has passed and we're safe and sound. Yesterday was a gorgeous day in the high 60's, and the sun finally came back out. And the rest of the week is supposed to be lovely fall weather. Something that we are all happy to see after 5 full days of rain!

Over the weekend, J and I walked around our neighborhood, and it's quite the mess. We were fortunate to never lose power, but a lot of people weren't so lucky. Power lines were down all over the place. And unlike a few people as you can see below, are cars were left untouched. They're muddy now and covered in leaves, but nothing that can't be cleaned up!






And then a few houses down the street, we see this pole down because of the tree in the pictures above. Again, our little neighborhood is a bit of a mess.

Another block down, we have this tree down. Not as bad, but still blocking the whole street.


Our hot water was out for about 48 hours, but it's back, and now we're clean and happy! Hopefully in a few days most of the neighborhood will be picked up and clean. The streets are full of debris, but at least it's drive-able.

Thanks goodness this storm has passed!
