Can't see it very well, but our driveway was littered with branches and debris following a terrific storm that hit Tues afternoon, just about when we were set to leave for an appointment. The storm was forecasted, and I didn't like the looks of the sky, so I picked up the phone and called off on the appointments. As I was almost finished with my message,
this tree came down in the front yard. A 10 minute storm=a 35 hour power outage. No worries, I've got this:
Grabbed the Koolaid and tea out of the fridge, and announced: the fridge stays CLOSED!
Meals were cooked out on the grill. I intentionally bought this model with a side burner JUST for this reason. We made it through, the roads were finally cleared yet as of 10 p.m. tonight (Th) there are still a few without power. Many have generators,and I plan on having one at my next forever home, meanwhile,I rely upon my Girl Scout skills.
