Update: storms

Imagine my surprise when I stepped out my back door
this morning , walked out in our back yard and found
this branch lying next to the house. I am so thankful
that we did not get the 80 mph winds that some did
or I am sure this huge tree would have come right
down on top of our house or through the kitchen
window.

It is an old tree that keeps losing it's branches and
really needs to be cut down, but just
haven't gotten to that yet.

Still no power...still running generator. Power to
come back on sometime tomorrow.

Blessings~

I guess no matter what you can always find a worse-case-senario.
Take care & keep your head down!!

Dang...that was too close for comfort! I'd be out there sawing away at that big tree today. Oh wait maybe not, I could maybe get a new house if a tree fell on mine. Believe me...I'm just kidding here!
I hope you get power soon.

Glad you're safe, Sandi! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has run a computer on a generator! Ha! ♥

So glad you avoided the dangerous winds, too. We have lucked out in our nexk of the woods, although parts of Michigan was not so lucky the last couple of weeks.

Oh Sandi,
I'm glad it wasn't any closer. Thinking of you without any power, just take it easy and try to relax. So glad you're alright!

Sandi, that was one powerful storm. Ok, I'll swing by and get Becky in Florida and then fly up and pick you up in Michigan. Oh there's one problem, I don't fly :) So that means you'll have to plan a trip to Texas!
