How Did you Ride Out the Storm?

The warning sirens echoing off buildings woke me up around 1:30 AM this morning and the sights out my window were quite alarming. Seeing rain drops pushed by the brutal wind like blowing snow in a winter blizzard was unsettling even to my usually calm nerves. Other than venturing out to close the hallway window in my building, I stayed in my condo and watched TV for about 20 minutes until things calmed back down.

I was able to get back to sleep rather easily, so my lost period of slumber hopefully won't affect me like those up all night. I predict the line at Coffee Emporium will be out the door this morning.

Damage I hope wasn't too bad for most people. There are reports of chairs been ripped of decks in OTR and many trees were toppled, including this one into a house in Mt. Lookout.

  1. I woke up with the sirens and stayed awake until about 2:00. I didn't get out of bed. Just stayed awake until I figured the house wasn't going to take us to Oz.

  2. I can happily say that the deck chair has been retrieved. But the back fence looks like Dorothy & her house fell on it...
