Well after that storm yesterday, it's bright and sunny here this morning. Cold but sunny never the less. My front yard and the street out in front of my house looks like a battle zone. There's leaves, branches and all sorts of debris everywhere !
There are still hundreds of homes without power. And as I was watching the news last night, it was amazing the amount of damage that occurred in some areas. There was one fellow up north of here that thought he should go out and move his new Toyota pick up and as he walked out the door, a giant Douglas Fir tree, fell right across the cab of the truck. And there were pictures of trees over houses and even a 76 Union gas station that was heavily damaged. The wind blew the roof and awning off the building.
They say another storm is headed our way, so I guess today I'll get done what needs to be done in case I have to stay in again.
By the way, we were so thrilled to hear from the former neighbors, the Newtons. They not only sent a lovely thank you card but Mr Newton called Bob's cell phone Sunday afternoon. They have moved to a town just outside of Kansas City, MO. They had a smooth trip between here and there and the movers had all their belongings deposited in their new place when they arrived. They were able to lease the "other-side" of the duplex where their daughter, son-inlaw & grandkids moved after leaving here for new jobs this last August. I know they were thrilled to finally sell their house and be close to their daughter again, but I sure do miss them....it's just not the same.
Well, I hope everyone has a good Tuesday, for those of us in the U.S. it's back to the "real world" today. The mailman will show up and the banks will be open again after the Monday holiday. Until next time.......Linda
