Before and After Frankenstorm

The storm is over, and we are safe and feel very lucky.

We weathered through the long high wind storm without any major problems. Miraculously, my neighborhood has power despite power failures in almost all neighborhoods for miles around. Traffic lights are out  and most stores are closed in all of the neighboring towns!. Most of our friends do not have power, the schools and most people's place of employment still  lack power as of Thursday!

The Sprint Towers are out , so we do not have cell phone power.

Other than that, we only lost a tree, which is minor compared to what happened to some  of our neighbors.

A part of our tree split and broke off and will require some major clean up, but many of our neighbor's trees ripped out of the roots and dug up the entire area of their yard. Scary!!

My neighbor's tree!!Scary, missed the house

Our tree split down the middle and fell

another scary one..

Just for the fun of it, I took a picture of my neighbor's tree before the storm , then I took a picture this morning after the storm. It is still in one piece, but most of the leaves are gone overnight!

I know that many people have not been as lucky. Many are without power, some are flooded, many in deep snow..
Our thoughts are with you, and we pray for your safety and that all will be well soon.!

  1. Hi Judee, I survived Frankenstorm and my development was really spared. Lost power at 9:45 PM last night but back on 6 AM. Phones are out but small price compared to some. Prayers going out to all. xo

  2. Glad to hear you're safe. We've been praying for everyone in the path of the storm!

  3. Very glad to know you are safe and have power. Sorry about the loss of your tree, glad all else is intact!

  4. So glad to hear that you and your family are safe. Thank god all that was damaged was your tree.

  5. So glad to know you are fine after this terroble event!

  6. Sorry to hear about the damage to your tree, but glad to hear that you are okay. It was quite the storm. I enjoyed hearing from you over at my blog today, and glad you liked the African Peanut Soup. Your version sounds good, too. I think you're right--the peanut butter is key to that recipe. Nice to hear from you!

  7. Vet techs must understand the way animals behave in order to deal with them properly as well. Once they are working professionally, they will be expected to fulfil certain tasks such as taking vital signs, administering shots and medicines, and healing minor wounds or bruises in the absence of the veterinarian in charge.
