"It was a dark and windy night....."

It was,, really. Dark and Windy. Very, Very Windy! I thought the house was going to leap up from the foundation and head to Kansas...


or maybe Bill Pullman and Helen Hunt would stop by......


It was that windy. Trash cans blew around and left my yard. Tree branches fell. Water pooled in the back yard, Sump Pump on and then.... Electricity OUT!!! For about 6 hours we were without electricity. I made my husbands breakfast and lunch by candlelight and then headed back to bed in hopes the lights would come back on. Around 9;15am.. Lights, camera, action!!! WE were in good shape. The cellar emptied itself with water, the fridge was on and I could make COFFEE!!! A great day otherwise. Getting more done all the time now that I'm not working as much. Have a happy Monday night!!
