On Saturday morning the rains came and then high winds began. Early in the afternoon when the high winds really whipped up we knew we had to go out and remove the patio covers before they and our supports were ruined. Shortly after the covers and any light furniture and decor were tucked away nicely the power went out. We were without power from two in the afternoon until seven in the evening. We were the lucky ones who had their power restored. Our kids still did not have power on Sunday morning. When we left the house for church on Sunday morning we saw some of the wind damage in our neighborhood.
Saturday was not a good day to travel anywhere and I’m happy we all stayed at home and rode out the storm. Katie and I worked on a jigsaw puzzle by candlelight.
My neighbors are now waiting for insurance adjusters to come out and survey the damage before they do any removal.
These examples were minor compared to other damaged property and some lives lost when trees landed on top of cars driving down the road. There are still thousands of households without power.
We are very thankful for the rain and that the high winds are dying down. Hope your weekend was more peaceful…
I’ll be linking up to ABC Wednesday started by Mrs. Nesbitt and carried on by Roger and the ABC team on Tuesday. H is for High Winds and Havoc!
