Yup, I'm sitting in a warm and well lit house! On Saturday, October 29, we were hit with a Nor'easter and we lost power about six o'clock. Out side you could hear the trees popping, cracking, and crashing to the ground! We had an unusually
warm hot fall this year so the trees have held on to their leaves. Leaves on trees and wet heavy snow results in very dangerous conditions.
Mark and I went to bed and suddenly we heard a extremely loud crash! Got up and looked out our window and saw that part of a maple tree had fallen. Both Mark and James went outside to survey the damage, they kept saying "You got to come see this!" Nope, not me, it was too scary out there! I woke up the next morning at 5:30 to take the dogs out. It was eerily quiet, no sound, not even birds chirping.
Six days without power, made me appreciate the simple things in life.
There are still many people without power tonight. Please keep them in you thoughts and prayers.
