We've weathered (pun!) the storm here in our part of PA. At the Connell house, we had a few small branches come down, but considering our house is surrounded by old, tall trees, we were quite happy with a couple of manageable limbs. Half of the lattice wall on the back porch flew off, too--not a big deal at all. The basement is dry, we have power, our home is in tact. Amen!
There were many who didn't fare so well, including some neighbors. I cannot believe some of the images I'm seeing from New Jersey and New York City. Our prayers are with those who were affected.
On a lighter note, here are some of the ways we got through the howling wind and crashing rain earlier this week:
|Snuggled with a slipper...|
|Took a nap (or two or three)...|
|Looked around suspiciously...|
|Hid under a pillow...|
Back at school today. On Halloween. After a four-day weekend. NEAT! Should be an interesting day!
