Thar she blows! [Sep. 17th, 2008|12:07 pm]
I'm still here. We don't have power yet, but the weather is wonderfully cool and dry, so it's not bad at all. Except Husband is going mad without access to the internet. (As he put it, I'm a technology guy. Not having technology is hard on me) I think mostly he's miffed because he was in the lead in his fantasy football, and didn't get to change his lineup last week, so has lost ground. Men and their toys.

Right now I'm at work.  I've never posted from work before, but wanted to let everyone know we're OK. We lost a tree and lots of branches and some shingles and a door off the shed and half the back fence and I stepped on a nail cleaning up the backyard and spent 2 1/2 hours at the emergency clinic getting a tetanus shot and am now on an anti-infective and an antibiotic (both of which warn that dizziness may be a side effect, and they weren't kidding) but overall it hasn't been bad. Much, much nicer than Alicia, when it was 98* afterwards.

I took tons of pictures but don't have any way to upload them until the power is back on, and I have no idea when that will be. There are a lot of trees on lines and lines down in my neighborhood, so the power is kinda spotty. We know that the main line to the street my sister and my mom live on is down, so it may be another week for them. I'm hoping ours will be sooner.

Glad you guys are OK. OUCH about the nail. I've been wondering how you fared.

So thankful you're all OK! I'm sorry to hear about you stepping on a nail! Also about the damage and loss of power. Nice to hear that the weather is cooler down there right now! Still keeping you all in my prayers and hope you all have your power restored soon!

y'all take care!

Glad you're okay! Ouch to the nail ordeal though...hope your foot heals nicely.

Call me disturbed, but I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures. I'd probably be a lot different if it was something I had to live through though. ;-)

Hear my sigh of relief?

Oh man, I've been hoping you would post soon!! I was really worried about you! :-(

*SO HAPPY* to hear you are safe and endured minimal damage.

Good to finally hear from you. I figured you were okay, but it's nice to know it! I can't believe you're back at work. I just imagine everything being shut down and finding completely impassable roads. Personally, I'm on your husband's side, and I'm not even a technology guy, but living without my electronic toys for even a few days sends shivers down my spine.

Big hugs!
