We Survived

Last night while laying in bed we could hear the winds ripping across the house. The attic creeked and popped withstanding the wind gust. We could hear the bushes whipping the shutters then drifted off to sleep. 

The winds were just gusty and I think the strongest was 30mph winds. Not enough to tear a roof off but enough to clean the dead branches out of the tall pin oaks in the neighborhood. 

Our lawn is free of trees except a dogwood out back and a butterfly bush that is now leaning even more than it was. I'll go out and straighten it later. I usually cut it way back in the Winter anyway. 

One neighbor was not so lucky as Hurricane Irma toppled a tree on his property. No one was hurt but it was a site for the neighbors. We may gather up and help with the debris and may need to have a chain saw party. 

Below is a photo of the damages. 



We are survivors.


Note: Yes im taking this as a joke but remember there are many that are devistated with damages. Keep
Praying for those lost and damaged by this storm.

  2. We got out of Venice when the winds were starting to be forecast for 100+ I thought my house could take it, but I would have been scared to death. Luckily we didn't get the eye and I think they were around 70 mph, so twice what you experienced. Can you imagine?

  3. I commented once, just checking to see if this goes. Glad the wind is gone. It shook the MH some, but no problems. I hope it is good by to IRMA!
    Love from the Bell town,

  4. I hear Charleston flooded which surprised me as they weren't even close to Irma's path. We had strong rain and winds but nothing too bad. Power went out last night from 7-10ish and again this morning for about an hour.

  7. Last night we had a big lightening storm. It wasn't how loud it was that made it scary. It was the fire engines' sirens.

  12. Lisa, I'm glad you came through it all so well. My nephew in Florida had to evacuate and was relieved to come home to very little damage - some missing roof tiles and a few leaks to mop up, but no flooding. I feel for those who did not fare so well.
