Our power came back at 6:38. We were dreading another night without a/c and ceiling fans. In the afternoon, I went to a client’s office about two miles from here and charged my phone and we prepared a pot of coffee. Best damn coffee ever!

Lots of tree debris in our circle but nothing big and no damage. Others around us had trees and large limbs that fell. Some fences were damaged but I haven’t seen any significant home damage on our street. Lots of flooding around the area and lots of trees down.

So happy you and your family are fine. My grandchildren are spending the night because my daughter has to be at work at 6:45 am. Kids will help with the cleanup tomorrow, and we will get all the plants and outdoor and porch furniture back in place.

Last night was scary. Worse storm I’ve experienced but we got through it.

Sleep peacefully tonight, my friend!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
