The Sound of Chainsaws was Heard in the Land
Thursday night, or technically Friday morning, we woke to the most intense lightning storm I have ever experienced. We had non-stop flashes of lightning for a good fifteen minutes, with corresponding thunder like a continuous avalanche of boulders.
Of course, when we got up, the power was out. The maple tree next to our yard had about two-thirds of the limbs twisted off and tossed into the fenced yard. (But not onto the house, thank goodness.)
So we are in the dark, flushing with rainwater and taking sponge baths in the candle-lit bathroom.
I'm posting from the library's WiFi point. Our power restoration estimate is Sunday around 4pm. I have some pictures of broken tree limbs I'll upload then.
Meanwhile, if your lights are on and your refrigerator is running, enjoy them for me!
