Post Hurricane

The power was out for most of the night, but it is up again now.  We might or might not be under a boil water alert, still trying to figure that one out.

Part of the fence blew over, so we went out this morning and propped it up a bit.  It didn't hit anything on the way down though, so all is well.
The kids got a bit stir crazy in the hour this morning before the power was back up and demanded to drive to Atlanta.  Silly children, it is headed there next.
I've been sewing circles.  Small, simple, not requiring much concentration.  Now it is just waiting for everything to get back to normal again.
First though, maybe a nap?  Not much sleeping happened last night.

having no power is something that kids have a hard time with I find - if they do not like to read but want their electronics instead it can be difficult. When my grandchildren are in situations like that the granddaughter who loves to read grabs a book - the grandson on the other hand paces the floor looking out the window - checking is phone or Ipad every little bit to see if he is connected and has power and goes crazy with boredom.
Glad you came through the storm just fine - I think most have - it wasn't as bad as expected I think which was a good thing.

Glad to hear you came through mostly unscathed. I have family in Jacksonville who have said this morning that all is well, with only some minor damage. Still waiting to hear from friends in Tampa who had evacuated earlier in the week. I know they are OK, but wondering about their house.

Betty Lou said...

Glad to see you were safe. I watched it most of the night over here in Louisiana too. Making sure it did make that northward turn!

It certainly seemed that no part of the state was spared Irma's rampage. Glad everyone is safe and that you don't have too much damage. Hope you got in a nap to make up for all the stress last night.

Alice said...

Glad you are safe!! Hope you finally got some rest.

Mari said...

Whew! Glad that you are safe! I say put the bored kids to work on cleanup, but that's just me. When do your classes start up again? Any damage to the school?

Kathy's A Quilter said...

What a relief to hear that you are all okay. All over but the cleanup?

claudia said...

So happy that Irma veered off to the side and that all you had to do was upright the fence! YAY! I'm glad you are all okay.

Danice said...

So glad that you are all OK. Yes, kids can get "cabin fever restless" easily. Glad you got time to do some quilting. Prim blessings.
