Riders of the Storm

We made out pretty well. The power flickered quite a bit, but stayed on (our usual fate seems to be losing power without warning, when there is no storm!); the wind made scary noises and banged the fauna around, but didn't hurt us. We lost a branch off the maple, about four inches in diameter, which is pretty normal for a storm like last night's (I haven't actually gone outside to see if there's another one or two resting on the house, though), but the maple itself is looking hale and hearty this morning. Of course there are twigs and smaller branches littering the back yard, but that's just Nature's pruning saw at work.

Hope all our FriendsAndRelations made it through o.k....
