What's All The Fuss?

So THAT was a hurricane??  I suppose I should consider us fortunate that it wasn't worse.  Dad keeps saying "Don't worry- the season's just beginning."  All I know is that it was windy and rainy, and, when the power went out early in the evening that meant that the air conditioning went with it, which also meant that the windows would be opened!  I live to sit up on the back of the couch and look out the window, especially when it's opened and I can smell everything and take in every movement.
     The lights came back on the next afternoon (yesterday), flickered a few times, then stayed on for good.  Mom was ecstatic, especially since she was caught off guard by the much-sooner-than-anticipated power outage.  On went the computer, on went the lights, on went the air conditioner, and down went the windows!  "Shit!" I said to myself.  Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.  Things are pretty much back to normal now.  I see they put away the carrier.  Now I can relax.

I'm glad you all weathered the storm. And I wish I was allowed to say the word "sh*t" just like you can!

It wasn't that bad for us eifur. We got about 4 inches of rain and the wind was really skeery, and the power went out for a little while, but other areas around us got it much worse. Glad you are all okay!

We're glad you're okay too! Far better to be prepared for the worst and not need the preparations, than to be caught off guard. We're sorry you've lost your open windows, though!
