Storm Water

We made it through the storm fine. We lost our internet connection for about 24 hours. The lights flickered many times, but we never lost our electric. The transom window above our front door leaked for several hours.

For many weeks, the retention ponds in our neighborhood have been very low. While taking a walk with the boys on Saturday morning, I took the picture below so that we could compare the water level after the storm. While we were on our walk, the sky went from light gray to dark gray, and we felt the first drops of rain.

Today the pond is full to the top and reflecting the pretty blue sky.

Some of our friends across town were evacuated from their homes. We are thankful that we were able to ride the storm out cozy and comfortable at home.
