I stayed in pajamas far too long and played card games for hours as the storm raged on. We worried for our grandparents, who live on the coast of North Carolina. I never realized how LOUD the storm would be, the wind shaking the house and pelting rain against the windows. Photos couldn't really do it justice (I should have taken a video!) but I managed to get a couple.
This is what my parents' yard looked like later that afternoon when the storm was pretty much gone:
Two full days of no power was starting to wear on me. And I was just trying to start week two of Leonie's Creative Goddess e-course, too! My parents do have a generator (luckily!) but those really only go so far, and I couldn't take the long, hot shower I really wanted to. Finally, at 5:00 this morning, the power kicked back on and I was so excited I couldn't fall back asleep. Thank you, Connecticut Light and Power!
Doesn't losing power always make us feel so grateful for how easy things seem when there is power?
