Here on high ground, we were spared the worst of the damage. Some limbs came down- a neighbor's tree was cracked in half- and a few pieces of siding were blown off some nearby houses. During the height of the storm, some of the wind gusts were strong enough to make the entire house shake- my brother says that's when he first started getting nervous. We lost power for a few hours last night, but electricity is now restored.
Compared to others in the area, we were very fortunate:
