While we are still dealing with the unsettling earthquake feelings, on Thursday, our power went out for 10 hours due to a tree falling on the power lines down the street. While the power was out, we had a severe thunderstorm with major wind! I don't know if I was still jumpy from the earthquake, but I took the kids and dogs to the center of the house away from windows to wait it out. We had a tree fall in the yard during that storm.
Saturday, Hurricane Irene came through and left some pretty major damage in the Richmond, VA area. We had big wind out here, and a few limbs down, but we never lost power. My parents in Mechanicsville, VA have been without power since Saturday afternoon.
On a lighter note, we got our first egg yesterday!
|Sweet tiny egg!|
