So far, so good. Which is to say, we still have power, and nothing terribly bad seems to have happened. The fence in the back yard has partially been blown down, but there is no flooding and no trees down. I think perhaps we are seeing the benefits of the summer derecho--there aren't very many dead trees or branches left!
With that said, the internet is showing terrible things happening in New Jersey, New York, and so on, including quite near to where some of my friends live. The winds here are also picking up, so we might still get some damage. Please keep everyone in the range of the storm (...so the entire East Coast, pretty much!) in your thoughts and prayers.
How did I get so lucky?
