Just a little breezy!

I wasn't in an area where we could take pictures of flooding but some of our major highways that we travel are closed and our county is under emergency.    We went to get diesel fuel last night for the generator and as we got to the one exit that we get off of, was just closing the thruway past that exit.  We were able to get fuel and head home before the highway was completely closed.   Not hearing a lot about the flooding around us, lots said in the coastal areas of course but not inland!
We were out of power all day yesterday except for a couple of hours.  We did get our power back around nine last night.   We did get around 6 to 8 inches of rain.

Well, we are into day two of the storm being over but the flooding is not. We are ok up on our mountain but a lot of places around us are in pretty rough shape. I feel bad for all those folks that have lost their homes and businesses! My prayers are for all those folks.

That hurricane was insane. Glad to hear you are ok. We got about 9 1/2 inches of rain and lots of wind. Luckily we are high enough up that we didn't have the flood waters.
