The storm on Sunday, the so-called leftovers from Hurricane Ike, was awe inspiring. We experienced 35 to 70 mph winds for about 5 hours steady. Can you imagine that much energy, that far inland, for that long?
We sat on the porch and watched it all in HD, silly mid-westerners that we are.
The power was off from noon until 3 am. Our little shed lost a bit of roof and the barn was stripped of a bit of metal siding. Our house is fine. The bunnies are fine. We were worried about our neighbor's house.
And rightly so. Everyone had gathered there to watch the Colt's game. Nobody was hurt.
No ladder needed to get the apples from the top of the tree.
