We have many branches down, a dry basement, and the power is now back on (but for how long?--still flickering). Tornadoes did not come to my neighborhood, luckily. We are very fortunate because many in our area have flooded basements, and trees through their roofs and cars. Hundreds of thousands in the state are powerless. The winds are still high and several creeks and rivers are yet to crest, so there's still some danger ahead.
I hope the rest of you (Sam?) are faring okay in all this rain and wind. xoxo!
Thanks for the good thoughts, all.
