8:14 am: Getting windier and there have been some downpours. Power went out about 6:30 am but came back on by 7:30.
10:30 am: Rain has stopped, but still some wind gusts. Power has flickered a couple of times but has stayed on. We're getting bored. L just woke up. The girls don't know what to do with themselves since the swim club (their social hub this summer) is closed. B is playing Guitar Hero.
1:30 pm: Pretty much a done deal. Still occasional wind gusts. Everyone is being way lazy.
3:24 pm: Power is off again. The generator is running so we have tv and wifi. And a functioning kitchen, so we can cook dinner. Not that I'm planning to make dinner. It's CORN -- Clean Out the Refrigerator night.
8:34 pm: Neighbors came over to hang out. They don't have a generator. Just as they rang the doorbell, the power came back on. Everything is clear now. B and I went for a walk about an hour ago. Lots of debris (leaves, sticks, pine needles) everywhere, but all looks good. One of our neighbors had a tree fall down and crash down on another neighbor's shed. Hasta la vista Hanna!
